We’re here for the butts: The big butts, the little butts, booties, chiseled cheeks — you name it. Just not cigarette butts. Cigarette butts are the most littered item ON EARTH, leaving the soil and water around them vulnerable to their toxicity. And spoiler alert: they’re literally toxic . Butts contribute to billions of pounds of toxic trash every year, and they leach harmful chemicals into the environment that contaminate our water.
Plus, most cigarette filters are made of plastic, not cotton — so they take a really really really long time to break down. That means they hang out —seeping toxins — wherever they land for a loooooong time.
Let’s fill the world with better butts — and help clear the air in the meantime.
