  1. Smokers who wouldn’t otherwise litter don’t think twice about throwing their cigarette butts on the ground, either. Are they worried about setting trash cans on fire? There used to be lots of public ashtrays with sand in them, but since smoking is no longer allowed indoors or even near outside doors, those have disappeared.

    I’ve volunteered to clean up beaches in Chicago and it’s truly shocking how many cigarette butts we collect. It’s like the whole beach is an ashtray.
