No if's, and's, or butts!
Cigarette butts are the number one litter item found by volunteers in Oregon and at cleanups worldwide, and can be highly toxic if accidentally eaten by children or pets. Cigarette filters are composed of a plastic that not only persists for years in the environment, but also leaches hazardous chemicals like nicotine and heavy metals. Most things made out of plastic like cigarette butts, do not biodegrade, but instead break down into small pieces that resemble food to fish, birds and marine mammals.
