Did you know that 4.5 trillion cigarettes are littered in the environment worldwide every year?
Bali, San Francisco, London… Many cities around the world have the support of thousands of kids just like you, doing beach or city clean-ups to help keep the environment safe and clean from the nasty cigarette butts.
Cigarette butts are big plastic polluters. 95% of the cigarette filter is microscopic-sized fibrous cellulose acetate; one cigarette butt can contaminate up to 500L of water.
In 2017 in the UAE alone 400,000 cigarette butts were collected just from beaches
Now is the time for the UAE boys and girls to step up, lead by example, and join this worldwide movement. UAE is home to incredible and impactful city-wide movements, and this campaign falls under the same principles: to engage the community in a campaign that promotes awareness about keeping the environment safe.
You have in your hands the power of a generation that is driven by doing what is right for our world.
When joining the campaign, you will receive:
- Participation form
- Reusable gloves
- Participation certificate
- Printable pdf with logo
