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.

Our next Butt Blitz event is coming up this spring! We are currently looking for coordinators in cities across Canada. If you're interested in hosting an event in your city or town send us an email. Registration for participants will open in March 2018.

What an impressive number of butts! We have the help of our Butt Blitz Intern Stefania Mustillo to thank! With her hard work we managed to organize 28 coordinators in 21 cities across Canada.
