Every Butt Hurts

Keep Your Butt In the CarLittering

Cigarette butts contain artificial fibers that are not biodegradable and harbor toxic chemicals. Every cigarette butt thrown on the ground stays there until someone picks it up! Dropping cigarette butts to the ground, putting them in planters, and tossing them into the street is littering.

In the past decade, cigarette smoking in America has decreased 28 percent, yet cigarette butts remain the most littered item in the U.S. and across the globe.
