As I was leaving a store yesterday, the breeze increased causing me to turn my face. A movement caught my eye. I stopped and realized rolling across the parking lot were a couple dozen cigarette butts. An idea popped into my head for a project.
I want to start a project entitled, "See a Butt, Pick it Up!"
Years ago, while on a Cub Scout field trip I learned from our guide at Palmyra Nature Cove that cigarette butts were becoming a problem for them. Why? Birders would come, perch to watch their feather friends in a quiet and serene locations only to litter the area with their butts!!! The guide said he was doing all he could to "educate" the masses.
Here is a few websites where you can learn more of damage these butts make:

Who is going to help me? Show of hands!!! See a Butt, Pick it Up!
