No More Naked Butts on the Beach
See if these folks were flaunting sexy butts, then you wouldn't want to get 'em off the beach. Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), Marine Conservation Society and British Naturist campaigners took to a Brighton beach and took a crack at getting out the word. You say but you've told us this before. But it's too difficult to get rid of my cigarette butt when I'm at the beach. Butt, butt, butt...
The incidence of cigarette butts on beaches is on the increase, and here are some facts to explain why that’s such a bad thing:
• Cigarette butts are one of the most commonly found litter items on beaches around the UK. • They are not biodegradable, but made from 12,000 plastic fibres. • 1 cigarette butt can take up to 15 years to break down. • Each cigarette butt can pollute 3 litres of seawater. • Cigarette butts are often mistaken for food by marine wildlife.
