A young community reporter tackles littering by picking up and disposing of massage parlour cards in Al Nahda 2, Dubai.
She goes around her community, picks up the cards and disposes of them in the trash
Alot of reports have been published in Gulf News about massage parlour cards left on cars around the city. Most people just get annoyed by these cards and throw them on the road, which makes the place look untidy.
Day by day, it looks like the people who place these cards in car windows are becoming bolder.
They come by at any time of the day and leave multiple cards on each car.
As a resident, it disturbs me a lot and as a young person, I cannot stop those men from leaving a trail of cards.
So, I thought of helping the municipality workers in my area, which is Al Nahda 2 in Dubai.
I walked around and removed massage cards and other advertisement business cards from many car windows. I collected more than 100 cards and threw them in the municipality bin.
Whenever I am free, I take a walk around my building and try to remove as many cards from the cars as possible, which at least helps the municipality workers who must find it difficult to pick up the cards from the ground.
Unfortunately, there is no decrease in the massage cards in my area.
It seems like the more the municipal workers remove them, the more frequently the men visit the area to leave cards behind. I sympathise with the workers and so am just doing this as social work. based in Dubai.
