Example of a Hygiene Poster – In public places, we often find writing that contains an appeal to always keep the environment clean. However, there are people who still litter, not in the bins that have been provided.
Maybe, if you just write it, it won’t work right away, because some people are not educated about environmental hygiene, so they still throw garbage out of the way.
But, what if the message and education is conveyed through a poster with pictures, so that it can attract the attention of those who see it.
If people are interested, of course the message will be easier to convey and the public will be more educated.
So, if you are looking for image ideas to serve as a reference for making posters for maintaining cleanliness, be it affixed in the home environment, school environment, as well as workplaces or public places.
