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!!!
