The Butt Blitz
The Butt Blitz is an annual Spring event that aims to remove as much cigarette butt litter as possible from the environment. Volunteers pick up cigarette butts locally and they’re sent to TerraCycle Canada for recycling. We hope to raise awareness of the negative impacts that cigarette butt litter has on ecosystems and health, and prevent future littering.
Butts Picked Up To Date: 714,994
BUTTS PICKED UP SO FAR DURING THE 2019 BUTT BLITZ:
This year we’re doing the Butt Blitz a little differently than previous years. Individual volunteers across Ontario are picking up butts in their local neighbourhoods between April 1st and 27th. Then, on April 27th we’re hosting a public City-wide event in Hamilton, Ontario. Click the buttons below for further information or to register.
