Cigarette waste

Seven hundred and twenty- three cigarettes. That is approximately how many are in the pile in the top left corner. Cigarettes contains approximately 4,000 chemicals that are harmful to the environment. Cigarette filters are not biodegradable yet they are the most littered item in the world. I found all of these just outside of my dorm. Wildlife is also affected. The bottom two photos are located right next to where the geese took off from. Animals areaffected in a number of ways from littering. They can suffocate, choke, or pierce themselves depending on the item.Animals can even leave there environment because the pollution is that bad. Help spread awareness! Share facts you know. It only takes a few extra moments to put recyclables into the proper bins. If you do not have any nearby- try to take a few seconds and put that item in the garbage. .
