This Earth Day consider the impact of smoking on the environment

This Earth Day let’s consider some of the facts about cigarettes and their impact on the environment.

Cigarette butts are the most littered item globally, making them not only an eyesore, but a massive environmental problem. With teen smoking rates at an all-time low of just 7 percent, down from 23 percent in 2000, ending tobacco is truly an achievable goal.
