Noise pollution is the propagation of noise that has a harmful impact on both urban centers and wildlife alike; it is primarily caused by transportation systems and industrial zones. #SayNope is a campaign inspired by the #MeToo movement and its ability to use social media and the power of communication to create positive change. Our goal was to gather all the information we could on the harmful effects of noise pollution and to bring awareness to an issue that is very much present and relevant— yet virtually unnoticed. Ironically, noise pollution is the pollution you that never hear about.
