Tip of the Month
Instead of throwing your cigarette butt on the ground, look around your home and find a personal carrying container for your purse, pocket, backpack, or car. Everyday items like mint, gum or yogurt containers & mason jars work great for holding your unwanted butt until you get to the next garbage can.
