Recently I have come across a major issue when talking with a friend. We were both enjoying a cigarette and stubbled on something... We came across the issue that after we are finished the filter tip is frequently deposited on the floor or into an ashtray, when provided.

With this coming to light I began to research more into the issue. I found that cigarette but are and have been the highest source of litter around the world. Even when disposed correctly they are not recyclable and are just general waste. This was seen to me as a MAJOR issue.

I then began to look for a solution to this major issue. I found that swan, a well know filter brand, sell biodegradable cigarette filters on Amazon, I thought brilliant! I was then shocked with a price tag of £7.99, normal filters are priced at £1 and are accessible in near enough every shop! It was a stepping stone but didn’t really sort the issue. 

every major company would have to be onboard with this issue to completely change what is happening. Make cigarette tips biodegradable solves the pollution problem and saves the planet with such a small minor change. It takes out the issue of the population that smokers not giving a dam or having to go out there way to spend 7.99 to make this achievable. 

For me this is an extremely serious issue and personally I believe it is easily sorted. People will always smoke, it’s a fact, but let’s stop it from harming our planet after the smoke has finished damaging it already.
