This is awesome news!
RSA have been working for 16 years to start its nonprofit to educate and irradiate cigarette pollution for just this such reason. Responsible Smokers Act hopes to make ashtrays that educate from cigarette butts(Cellulose Acetate), so the solution is within the problem.
A self-sustaining "upcycling" nonprofit with one goal, clean up and prevent cigarette litter. Use the litter to make collection facilities, makes the litter a valuable resource in anti litter receptacles.
Its been proven with the spread of smoking bans have increased the amounts of litter collecting outside public establishments.
Please check out RSA and help us communicate with the people actually doing something about the disgusting and environmentally devastating problem.
This is like the Erin Brockovich Movie Scenario times a million. Bio-accumulation of smokers byproducts is worse than smoking itself!
