Cigarette Litter
Put this waste, in its place!

Every day, hundreds of cigarette butts are thrown out of people's cars or dropped randomly on the ground.  Not only do they trash our environment, but they are an eye sore and fire hazard.  They are also very bad for the environment. 

Every year, hundreds of volunteers go out into our communities and pick up litter.  Cigarette butts are the number one item collected. 

 

Do your part, be smart and put cigarette butts out and in the trash!

 


12,121 cigarette butts -
 if placed end to end would stretch more than 1,010 feet!!!
