The DOG POOP PROJECT, launched by art director Jang Cho, a resident of Astoria, Queens:

"The 32-year-old art director started snapping photos of dog poop around his neighborhood, then printed the pics on “Found” fliers, which he posts on lampposts and utility poles.
"If it’s yours, please call or e-mail me," the flier reads, providing a voicemail number and an email address — LostDogPoop@gmail.com — both of which auto-reply with a friendly public service announcement about the importance of curbing your dog.
"A poop-free Queens is a better Queens, for everyone," the message says. [DNAInfo]

BREAKING: Cho says the Dog Poop Project is headed to Brooklyn.
