Description: In 2012, 6.3 trillion cigarettes were consumed globally, imagine how many of those ended up in our environment. It makes water and topsoil toxic for plant life, and animals, not to mention how many pets and our children try to consume them. On May 7th, the 2nd Annual Butt Blitz was not only in Barrie but also across Canada, to help clean up the worldâs most commonly discarded item. In Barrie we collected 7,475 Buttz with more then 122,800 across the county as numbers are still coming into A Greener Future, the non-profit that organizes the event. All the butts collected will be sent into TerraCycle to be recycled into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets. Please join us next year we need all the help we can get to clean up our city, country and planet. Visit www.agreenerfuture.ca to find out what you can do to help!
