We need to talk about BUTTS.
The cigarette butt…
They are the biggest smallest polluter out there,
I created a work based on the research of the World Health Organization (WHO) and Surfrider Foundation Europe where the impact of one single butt is shown. Because they can pollute 500 liters of water each, and from the almost 6 trillion cigarettes smoked 65% end up in the soil, rivers and oceans.
