The Butt Blitz
May 5th, 2018 11am - 2pm across Canada
The Butt Blitz is a single-day 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 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.
