Cigarette butts are a highly contaminating waste, as they are made of monoacetate, mainly derived from petroleum and, therefore, they are not biodegradable. In fact, each cigarette butt takes 15 years to decompose itself.

Each buried cigarette butt in the sand can pollute up to 25 litres of water and have unpredictable consequences in nature and animal species living in our coastal area.

Due to their small size and light weight, mechanical cleaning services have a hard time removing all the cigarette butts that careless smokers leave in the sand. That increases the costs of removing them enormously.

Day after day, thousands of butts are left in our beaches and we need a cheap and effective solution to this problem.

    Step 3

    When you are leaving the beach, go back to the stand where you found your ashtray and empty it in the bin located next to the stand, making sure that all buts are well put out. Please, notice this bin is not for rubbish. Use it only to empty your ashtray and dispose your cigarette butts.
