We are dirty

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania ranks consistently as one of the top ten dirtiest places in the United States. *sources

We have a litter problem

Philadelphia spends 48 million dollars a year on litter cleanup. That costs about 30 USD per resident.

We are a great city

We have four seasons, many great sports teams, UNESCO World Heritage status and the largest urban park system in the United States. (9,200+ acres of park!)
