Bag the Butts

2017 "Bag the Butts" Activities

Take Action

Join Breathe New Hampshire for our 8th annual environmental clean-up activity, “Bag the Butts” focusing on collecting discarded cigarette butts along with other trash.  Although one of the smallest types of trash, cigarettes continue to be the most littered item across the globe. 

This year we welcome new partner Cheshire Coalition for TOBACCO FREE COMMUNITIES. Thank you for "Bagging the Butts" on April 22nd.  Over 100 volunteers "Bagged the Butts" at 7 locations in Keene, Swanzey, and Winchester.  Jane Skantze, Tobacco Control Specialist at Cheshire Coalition for Tobacco Free Communities said, "Not only did we rid our town’s parks and beaches of cigarette litter, we raised awareness of the environmental and health hazards of tobacco use.  This event was a success because of everyone's hard work and dedication.“  See more photos from Cheshire Coalition's "Bag the Butts" activity at
