Group Brings Attention To #1 Litter Problem In America: Cigarette Butts

April 25, 2012   With Earth Day approaching, a public health nonprofit group is trying to call attention to a huge litter problem: cigarette butts. According to 2011 The Tax Burden on Tobacco report, Americans bought nearly 300 billion cigarettes last year, and they’re still tossing those butts into parks, on beaches and in other waterways. In fact, cigarette butts are the number one most littered item in America. David Dobbins, spokesman for the nonprofit group Legacy, said a survey they did last month shows that most people don’t realize what a big problem cigarette butts really are.
