If you smoke, find and use a buttcan (numbered items on the map) — we’ll recycle all your butts or get a free pocket ashtray from one of the stores on the map (pocket ashtray icon).
Buttcans are cigarette receptacles where you can safely dispose of your butts. Pocket ashtrays are fireproof pouches or containers that trap smells and keep butts contained until you can safely throw them away. Carry a pocket ashtray for temporary cigarette butt storage. Use the ashtray again and again.
Cigarette filters are made of tiny threads of cellulose acetate plastic – the same plastic in glasses and sunglasses. Littered butts slowly break up into thousands of plastic threads that pollute our water and soil.

Let's fix this — In the San Francisco Bay Area alone, 3 billion butts are littered annually. You can help change that!
