Prevent Toxic Tobacco Waste Damage
The ecological impacts of tobacco products are considerable. Here are a few ways you can get involved to help keep our environment tobacco-free:
- Quit using tobacco products to avoid creating toxic tobacco waste.
- Join local efforts, like a beach cleanup day, to keep your environment clean of toxic tobacco waste.
- Contact your elected local officials about the environmental impact of tobacco and inform them that cigarette butts are toxic and harm the environment.
- California Department of Transportation. Don't Trash California.
