And now we're doing something about it. Cigarette butts are the number one biggest debris item cleaned off of beaches in the Ocean Conservancy's International Coastal Cleanup.
Now the state of Oregon (love my home state!) is doing something about it with a leading effort to get butts off the beach. An Oregon state representative is sponsoring a bill to make littering with cigarette butts illegal.
This is a "butts off the beach" effort that I can really get behind.
