Let the Butt Collecting Begin!

recycleI signed up for a free Terracycle account. They have many programs you can sign up for, so I have started with the cigarette butt recycling program. They provide posters for collection about what can be recycled, instructions on shipping materials, they provide free shipping labels, they donate $1.00 for every pound collected to Keep America Beautiful Cigarette Litter Prevention Program… and I earn points which I think works out to donating money to either schools or a charity of your choosing (in this case my choosing). Plus all those butts getting recycled and being made in to something else. I still need to find out how to go about getting cigarette collections bins for public areas where people loiter about… I will even collect from those so someone else doesn’t have to. I feel excited that I moved forward… can’t wait to print a shipping label and ship off butts and do a cigarette butt pick up day… often!
