Problem

Our problem is that there is too much cigarette butts lying all around South San Francisco and this need to stop.The cigarette butts litter the environment, and the toxic chemicals in the residues seep into soils and waterways, thereby causing soil and water pollution, respectively. Cigarette butts can affect you and your family because it releases toxic chemicals including arsenic (used to kill rats) into the environment.

Solution

A few solutions to decrease the amount of cigarette butt waste in South San Francisco are that we can have certain spots for smokers. With ashtrays nearby so they can put their garbage in the right place instead of the ground. We can also add No Smoking Signs by children’s parks, schools, or any children friendly areas. We can have weekly community cleanups in the area such as Orange Park. By using these solutions we are able to reduce the amount of cigarette butt waste in South San Francisco. With the help of Mayor Richard Garbarino he can make these happen. If our solutions aren't solved there would be a bunch of non degradable cigarette butts lying around South San Francisco releasing toxic chemicals into the air and harming our wildlife and people.

Please sign this petition to make South San Francisco (our home) a safer and cleaner place for everyone.
