Clean the Butts
Eliminating the #1 littered item in the world.
Cigarette butts are the most littered plastic item in the world.
You read correctly, cigarette filters are plastic.
We are working to eliminate the world's most common piece of litter!
By involving and empowering our community through clean-ups and educational events, we're changing the culture around smoking and littering.
WHAT WE DO
Trillions of cigarette butts are thrown on the floor every single day worldwide
Butts are toxic and plastic, so we're stopping them from poisoning our home and entering the sea, where they can kill marine animals!
It's a misconception that cigarette filters aren't "litter", since they're so small and look like cotton
Through our beach cleanups, social media content and educational outreach events we are providing information and encouraging community involvement and change.
There's a lack of cigarette butt receptacles in the world, we're working on changing that!
We now have personal reusable pocket ashtrays made from all recycled materials! They're a lightweight and smell free solution for your stinky butt!
TURNING SOMETHING NEGATIVE INTO A REASON FOR PEOPLE TO COME TOGETHER
