Cigarette butts are the most littered item in America.
The 2011 Ocean Conservancy International Coastal Cleanup again identified cigarette butts as the number one most littered item, representing 32% of all debris counted.
While seemingly insignificant,throwing them a car, dropping cigarette butts to the ground, putting them in planters, and disposing of them in waterways is littering. And there are consequences. Cigarette butt litter is unsightly, costly to clean up, and harmful to waterways and wildlife.
