Keep Texas Beautiful Webinar: Battling Cigarette Litter with TerraCycle

October 18, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Cigarette butts are the most littered item on the planet. Up to 80% of the litter tossed on our beaches, parks, roadways, and sidewalks, by unit, is cigarette waste. Cigarette filters consist of a fibrous form of a plastic called cellulose acetate, and when it enters the environment, it causes countless problems. TerraCycle is a mission-based company that develops solutions to recycle difficult-to-recycle materials. Among their initiatives, they offer an innovative free program that allows communities, organizations, businesses, and individuals to recycle cigarette butts, and raise money for charity in the process. Learn everything you need to know about implementing this amazing and impactful program in your community from Eric Ascalon, the company’s Global Director of Community Development.
