Please sign this petition and help us convince the BC Government to introduce legislation to levy a special per butt deposit on all provincial cigarette sales and develop a cash back program on cigarette butts with drop off locations province wide. Cigarette butts constitute one of the greatest pollutants in our waterways, streams, lakes and ocean. Clean up efforts are simply not enough. We need to shift the societal problematic behavior through initiatives that focus on reward based solutions. The side effect of a successful campaign and cash back for cigarette butts program is the decreased occurrence of wildfires started by flicking a butt out the car. If we turn the butt into an item of value it will increase the chance of the butt to be properly extinguished stored and returned for recycling!
