Your butt’s stinking up the beach.

The beach is not an ashtray. Please collect your butts.

Why should I take care with cigarettes?

No one wants to see your dirty butt! Burying it in the sand doesn’t make it go away.

Please don’t flick off a chair lift, or toss it out your car window either. Hold on to your butts until you can properly dispose in a trashcan.

Cigarette butts tossed onto the beaches and trails release chemicals into the environment and can take at least ten years to degrade.
