Nearly 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered every year. In the 119 beach clean ups that we've done at Wrightsville Beach, we have removed nearly 40,000 cigarette butts from the beach sand. Here's the problem: Not only are those littered butts a blight to such a beautiful place... they're also toxic. We're trying to help make this problem better.... won't you join us? If you're local, please mark your calendars for March 8 @ 5:45. We'd love for you ALL to come help us encourage the Town of Wrightsville Beach to become the first smoke-free beach in North Carolina.
