Indian Time - A Voice from the Eastern Door

Main Reasons For Littering

 


WHY PEOPLE LITTER:

• People are too lazy to dispose of trash properly

• People are more likely to throw litter on top of litter than drop litter in neat surroundings

• Don’t Care

• Others will pick it up

• Not aware they are littering

SMOKERS AND LITTERING:

• Many smokers do not believe that littering their cigarette butts has an environmental impact or is inappropriate behavior.

• Many smokers blame their littering behavior on a lack of well-placed bins for cigarette butts.

• Over 80% of smokers said they would bin their butts if suitable bins were available.

• Over half of smokers said they would change their behavior if they were more aware of the issues and their potential environmental impact.

LITTERED CIGARETTE FILTERS CONTAIN TOXIC CHEMICALS THAT LEAK INTO THE AIR AND WATER.
