Bag the Butts™ clean-ups are not just for Earth Day. This summer and fall take advantage of the nice weather and do a yard, neighborhood, or community clean-up!

During your activity take photos of the clean-up and collected cigarette butts. With your participant’s permission, share photos with us at or #BagtheButts2021.

Cigarette butts remain one of the world’s greatest environmental litter problems, taking up to 10
years to decompose and leaching toxins into the ground and water. Breathe New Hampshire's Bag the Butts™ has been promoting state-wide community clean-ups for over 10 years to raise awareness of the environmental impact of cigarette litter while educating people on the risks associated with tobacco use.

Tobacco use is not only a health issue - it is also an environmental issue. Click on Tobacco and the Environment to learn more.
