Cigarette butts are the world’s most littered item, and they contain toxins that eventually end up in our oceans. One way to combat this problem is to notify your local public agency when you observe it. Smoke-Free San Diego has a list of local contacts here, where you can report cigarette butt litter when you see it.
Notifying our public agencies raises awareness of the problem, and helps enforce our local ordinances to keep cigarette butts off our streets, and out of our oceans. So remember, Hold On To Your Butt!
