Though plastic waste is arguably one of the most pressing environmental concerns today, there are other types of waste to which we should also give our attention. Like cigarette butts.
Here where I live, when you walk down the streets, whether it's early in the morning or late in the night, especially around busy districts, you will see a lot of cigarette butts on the ground. There aren't a lot of plastic bags, bottles, or cans, but cigarette butts abound. And well, there are a lot of consequences for that too.
