Anti-littering Campaign

Overview

Littering is the disposal of waste in the wrong place by unlawful human action, which can be environmentally harmful. It is common for young adults and school children to litter with soda cans, coffee cups, beer bottles, plastic bags, gum wrappers and various other items. These items can be seen alongside a road, stuck against a fence, or lying around an empty lot. It is important to educate the community about the consequences of littering and educate about the simple actions we can take as responsible citizens. A PowerPoint presentation has been prepared that aims to educate the general population on the importance of anti-littering. One of the best ways to reach out to a wider audience is to convert this into audio-visual multimedia regarding anti-littering.
