Cigarette Butts Are Litter

cigbutts_1327

How many cigarette butts did I pick up on less than a 1/4 mile of a lightly trafficked road in Nashville, Tenn. this morning? 339. Some were fresh; some filters had lost their paper covering.

Cigarette butts are trash and are hazardous to our environment. Since most buildings are now smoke-free (which is great), butt litter has increased in outside locations.

Start a cigarette litter prevention program in your area. Keep America Beautiful has some ideas or come up with your own.
