'Stomp Out Litter' PSA Returns to NYC Cabs and Dept. of Sanitation Trucks
New York City's dynamic STOMP OUT LITTER anti-litter public awareness campaign launched six years ago by Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Sanitation Commissioner John J. Doherty and featuring the cast of STOMP in a vibrant public service announcement encouraging New Yorkers to keep their city clean, can be seen again in New York City cabs and on posters on Department of Sanitation trucks. Watch it here: STOMP OUT LITTER.
The campaign is a joint effort of the Department of Sanitation, the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, the New York City Taxi and Limousine Commission (TLC) and NYC & Company, in conjunction with STOMP, the long-running off-Broadway hit.
All five boroughs are captured in the stunning spots, which follow cast members across the City from places including The Bronx Zoo, Staten Island Ferry, Coney Island Boardwalk, World's Fair Unisphere in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, Central Park, and Times Square. The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City raised funds to support design, film, and other costs associated with the campaign which were produced by NYC TV and Night Train Films in coordination with Serino Coyne Inc.
STOMP arrived in New York in 1994 from the UK and has become part of the theatrical landscape in New York, across the country and around the world. STOMP has received numerous honors including Olivier, Obie, Drama Desk and Emmy Awards; an Academy Award nomination, and has been seen in venues ranging from The Acropolis to the Academy Awards. In addition to the New York production, STOMP is on a North American tour, a European tour and in London's West End.
The Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City is a not-for-profit corporation established in 1994 to develop partnerships between the City of New York and the private sector. The Mayor's Fund accepts donations that help to promote the general welfare of New York City residents, aid civic improvements and support the work of many City agencies.
