Thank you to members of the Raymond Coalition for Youth for all their work for Operation Raymond Clean-up in 2022. They collected cigarette waste as part of Breathe New Hampshire’s annual Bag the Butts™ program..
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™ program 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.
