What makes graffiti so bad for the environment?

    It’s not necessarily graffiti that is bad for the environment, although a huge man made mural on the side of a hill is not exactly aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I think it’s more along the lines of the spray cans used to make graffiti is bad for the environment. Many aerosol cans use a propane/butane mixture as the propellant. Other aerosol cans use carbon dioxide as the propellant. When spraying graffiti, these byproducts go into the air and contaminate the atmosphere.

    Because graffiti itself is not necessarily a bad thing but the spray paint cans are, there is a movement now called eco-graffiti which makes public art out of natural materials.

    Another problem with graffiti is that strong chemicals are needed to remove it.  That has an obvious effect on the environment.
