This NY Times article struck a chord for me:
Cigarette Butts: Tiny Trash That Piles Up
Not only do I live in a house full of smokers but I am daily disgusted by the number of people who smoke here and how many butts there are on the grounds and on the beaches. At less than two dollars a pack I guess you can save up for your medical bills that will begin to pile up down the road. However, its still shocks and saddens me was I see a young mother exhaling into the face of her toddler as she walks down the street. When we went to Mar del Plata the beach closest to the Casino was so littered with butts I gave up trying to relocate them and plopped down in the midst of them. Anyway, now I know that they aren't just unsightly! They are also bad for the environment! One point for the non-smokers!
