Wanna stop supporting the tobacco industry, but can’t kick yer habit? Or just want to save some money? Flak Magazine has an article on picking up cigarette butts.
In all my years of picking up cigs off the street I’ve never caught a disease (in fact, I’ve caught more colds from my little nephews on holiday visits than I have in this activity). That said, this is a pastime neither for the squeamish nor social snobs. For the imaginative and frugal eccentric, however, picking cigarettes up off the street may prove to be rewarding and fun. Happy hunting!
I’m just glad I don’t smoke.
