From 4.5 Trillion!
61,106 Butts and counting

An estimated 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered every year around the planet. Millions of tonnes of toxic single use plastic; butts don't bio-degrade and can take up to 15 years to break down into micro-plastics which are harmful to any natural life not already wiped out by the toxins.4.5 trillion is incomprehensible as a number. You would have had to have dropped one every day since the beginning of time to drop the amount estimated to be dropped every year at present.

We're all human. Whether we are billionaires or beggars, we will all die in the same way if we don't protect our environment.Let's work together, across borders internationally, let's build bridges and not walls, lets unite the world.If you don’t know where to start, start small. Go out now with a washable gardening glove and an old jar and collect 100 cigarette butts. And see where the journey you start with that small step takes you. If you don’t think that one small being can make a difference, try spending the night in a tent with a mosquito.I'm challenging the whole of humanity to come together and collect 4.5 trillion cigarette butts in the next year. 4.5 trillion micro actions to transform the macro picture.
