Cigarettes butts (discarded filters) are the most common litter worldwide. These are mostly littered on the ground. The problem is that it takes 10 to 15 years for the filter fibres to break down by the ultraviolet rays from the sun and during this time their toxic materials like chemicals and heavy metals are released. They are difficult to clean up and also such process is costly. Cigarettes butts are poisonous to living organisms when ingested like fish and children. Another problem is that if the cigarette is still lit and tossed in a bush, the bush will probably catch fire.

Cigarette filter found in a garden. This cigarette was thrown away in the garden. Cigarette filters should be thrown in a proper bin after smoking.  Certainly not the right place where cigarettes are disposed. Tons of cigarette butts and cigarette related litter is dropped every day also from car drivers while driving that throw cigarette litter on the road. A lot of other animals in the wild are killed or injured by cigarette butts.
