Cigarette Butt Bin at 33 Mountain Street
Please install a cigarette butt bin outside the Greenpeace office. Currently hundreds of cigarette butts are being discarded on the ground outside 33 Mountain Street. These things end up in our waterways - killing birds, fish and other precious marine life. But with you help we can seriously reduce the amount of cigarette litter on the street.
Why is this important?
An estimated 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered worldwide every year. Not only do littered butts seriously reduce the aesthetic quality of any environment, but they can cause a great deal of harm. Cigarette butts can take up to 12 months to break down in freshwater and up to 5 years to break down in seawater. Birds and aquatic animals can mistake the butts as food, resulting in serious digestive problems that may lead to death. Butts have been found in the stomachs of young birds, sea turtles and other marine creatures.
We need to get butts off the ground and disposed of properly. Please install a cigarette butt bin outside 33 Mountain Street now!
