This year, my household's holiday card will celebrate ("celebrate") one of New York City's most iconic images:
The back of the card explains why this problem is so commonplace on NYC's streets and says how we could fix it:
Piles of trash blocking sidewalks and bike lanes are as iconic a part of New York City as the Brooklyn Bridge and the subway, but it doesn't have to be this way. Sealed waste containers could replace a couple street parking spots on every block to ensure trash stays where it belongs - in the bin!
I've made a few versions of this card that you can print on a standard 8.5" by 11" letter piece of paper and fold into quarters:
- Trashy Holidays from New York City! card with the black border and a small offset to account for folding and Trashy Holidays from New York City! card with the black border and no offset to account for folding, if you're confident you can reliably do borderless printing such that the border around the design is centered when folded
- Trashy Holidays from New York City! card without the black border, if (like me) you're not so sure of your printer
