Welcome to a PSA by NYC Clean!Cleaning NYC to make a Safer World!
Our mission is to use new, innovative strategies, to clean our city, and reduce the effects of poor sanitation, making NYC the new standard in clean, Urban living!
Cities were first developed in Ancient Mesopotamia, around 4500 BCE.
As populations rose, so did poor sanitation. Poor sanitation has been a problem ever since.
However, cities took off during the Industrial Revolution, where city populations rose
The poor choices made by city residents in the past have resulted in consequences for us in the present.
These consequences can include: harming aquatic wildlife and harming surrounding environments (see attached graph)
Actions such as dumping waste in water, burning waste, or creating waste disposal sites have caused such consequences
In addition to environmental factors, poor sanitation can lead to increased risk of diseases like cholera and dysentery. It can also increase anxiety in people
Consequences in the near future are similar to those of today, just on a much larger scale (more hurt wildlife and environment)
A case study done in 2019 shows how the effects of poor sanitation in cities on the rest of the country (U.S.)
The case study revealed that micro plastics from cities spread throughout streams and rivers all over the country, showing how litter in cities can affect other areas.
Some local governments have taken action, mostly through private contracts with companies that will increase sanitation
However, this is not enough. As a community, people need to propose legislation in their local governments that will enforce better sanitation habits
Individually, we need to practice better sanitation habits. Together, we can make NYC a cleaner city!
