what is the butt blitz?

The Butt Blitz is an event that aims to remove as much cigarette butt litter as possible from the environment across Canada. Coordinators recruit volunteers to pick up cigarette butts locally and then send the butts to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. We also hope to raise awareness of the negative impacts that cigarette butt litter has on ecosystems and health and prevent future littering through the distribution of pocket ashtrays.


why do we run this event?

Cigarette butt litter is a growing problem everywhere. We need to raise awareness about the implications this has for the health of our ecosystems, wildlife, and our own health. The first step to reversing this problem is picking up the butts that are already on the ground, from there we can spread awareness and come up with solutions that will stop cigarette butts from being littered in the future.
