Cigarette Litter Awareness Day in Pearland

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty Associates 0529267

The Keep Pearland Beautiful group is hosting the Cigarette Litter Awareness Day on Saturday, February 9th from 12pm-4pm. 

The of the most amazing facts I learned while gathering information for this blog, is that the Keep America Beautiful's 2009 research found that the overall littering rate for cigarette butts is 65%, with tobacco products comprising 38% of all US roadway litter.  Can you imagine!  If smokers would only stop throwing cigarette butts out of the window of the car, dropping them into planters or throwing them in our lakes, we would have a huge reduction unsightly and unhealthy litter.

Our Keep Pearland Beautiful group works so hard to keep our City looking good!  We need to get the word out to these smokers of the damage they are doing - maybe they aren't aware.

For more information, please call 281-652-1773.  Keep Pearland Beautiful is a non-profit organization affiliated with Keep America Beautiful and Keep Texas Beautiful.

You're exactly right Pam... A butt here and a butt there does add up to ugly litter!  One thing Debbie and I have talked about is the fact one doesn't see many smokers in Albuquerque.  Maybe it's because almost every where is considered a smoke free zone??  I'm all for keeping America beautiful.

More very good reasons to raise the amount of cigarette taxes to cover some of the clean up costs.  It is an excellent community clean up project.

Pam: I love your tender heart. It's true, some may not have even thought about it! Hopefully they will see this and make it a point to properly dispose of their cigarette butts.

Joni - You are so sweet!  I know that in the Piney Woods, careless smokers can burn acres of trees.  Scary!
