Purchase a portable ashtray
How does this action
help our Lagoon?
About 95% of cigarette filters are composed of cellulose acetate, a form of plastic, which does not quickly degrade and can persist in the environment. Cigar tips are predominantly plastic. Cigarette filters carry toxins. Cigarette butt litter can post a hazard to animals and marine life–these items are too often mistaken for food.*
Although it’s one of the smallest pieces of litter, communities report cigarette butts, including cigar tips, are the top item collected during local cleanups. All that litter has an impact on the places in which we live—it’s unsightly, it’s harmful to the lagoon and wildlife, and it’s costly to clean up.**
