Help us keep butts off Berkeley streets and out of our Bay

Smoking is not allowed in many outdoor areas in Berkeley and is banned on the UC Berkeley campus—and still, thousands of cigarette butts are casually tossed on Berkeley streets, where they enter storm drains and flow out into the Bay. The problem is many smokers aren’t aware that smoking is illegal in these areas and that cigarette butts are toxic, plastic trash.

That’s why for the month of September, we’re placing ads on eight bus shelters surrounding the UC Berkeley campus—some of the city’s cigarette litter hot spots like Shattuck and Addison—to illustrate how toxic, plastic cigarette butts end up in the Bay. By educating Berkeley residents about this issue, we can motivate the Berkeley City Council to take enforcement seriously and stem the tide of tobacco litter flowing into the Bay.

But we need to raise $4000 by August 10th in order to pull this off. Can you help us? Make a gift of $10, $25, or $50 to help us put this important message on eight bus shelters.
