Cigarette Butts Are One Of the Most Littered Items Globally

Cigarette Butts Are One Of the Most Littered Items Globally
Dec 4 2023 Share

As part of the return of Xummiemu, the local environmental mascot is reminding us of the impact cigarette butts have when thrown away as litter. 

Despite a decline in smoking rates, cigarette butts persist as a ubiquitous environmental concern, littering various landscapes, from green spaces to sidewalks, roadsides, beaches, and waterways.

With approximately 4.5 trillion cigarettes discarded annually worldwide, they claim the title of the most littered item on Earth. 

Constituting nearly 38% of all collected litter, cigarettes pose a significant environmental threat. Disposal habits contribute to this issue, as 75% of smokers admit to casually discarding cigarette butts on the ground or from vehicles. 

The environmental impact extends to the financial realm, with cities spending substantial amounts, ranging from $3 million to $16 million, on cigarette clean-up efforts. Additionally, cigarette waste is highly toxic, releasing chemicals like arsenic and lead into the environment, contaminating water sources and endangering aquatic life. 

The cigarette filters, often mistaken for cotton, are primarily composed of non-biodegradable plastic fibers (cellulose acetate), contributing approximately 1.69 billion pounds of toxic trash annually. 

Despite their slow decomposition rate, estimated at only 38% after two years, these cigarette butts persist as a long-lasting and harmful environmental issue.

This comes as France moves to ban smoking on beaches, parks and various other areas due to this same issue as well as an attempt to create a smoke free generation.

This earned him the name Falcon, who was only 2 days old and weighed just 27g at the time. 

After struggling for the first few days and weeks and struggling to gain weight, Falcon has gotten stable and has his carers very proud of his progress. 

People can now virtually adopt Falcon, or other animals, rescued by the crew. People are usually asked for donations which would go towards the food and medicine for the animals in rehab. 

There are 2 options for adoptions. The basic form is against a €30 donation which would include a digital adoption certificate and exclusive invite to the animal’s release.

People can also choose the Super Adoption, which is against a donation of €60 and includes a printed adoption certificate, turtle soft toy and the invite to the animal’s release.

Following Coldplay’s spectacular concert in Kuala Lumpur on November 22, which drew a record-breaking attendance of over 75,000 fans, an unexpected attendee stole the spotlight – a frog. 

Spotted quietly hopping around the stadium during the first song, “Higher Power,” a fan named @joeysugar_j decided to make the frog part of the unforgettable Coldplay experience.

Sharing a unique “Coldplay moment” with the amphibian, she released it onto the grass outside the stadium after the song. 

Although tempted to keep the frog, Joey hesitated due to the two-hour concert duration and, instead, sought the assistance of guards. 

They guided her to an outdoor patch of grass where she released the frog, allowing it to find its way home. The heartwarming encounter added an unexpected touch to an already remarkable concert experience, showcasing the power of music to connect even the most unlikely fans.
