With the entire region on high alert and facing a total fire ban, it’s more important than ever that you do not flick your cigarette butts out the window, Canberra.
If you have enough money to smoke cigarettes, you can clearly afford a vessel to safely dispose your cigarettes butts in.
People who smoke cigarettes cop a lot of flack. There is no judgement here, unless you can’t clean up after yourself. If you don’t, we all might have a problem. Not just during bush fire season, but all year round. Clean up your personal waste.
Canberra, we have a beautiful city. The national parks, dams and lakes that surround and are part of our city are some of the best in Australia. Take the extra few steps towards the bin as you pace about smoking or bring your own cigarette butt disposal tray.
You can purchase a metal mint tin from pretty much all Canberra service stations and super markets that will provide an effective disposal unit. And hey, mints and smokers go hand in hand, right?
If you are a smoker, reformed smoker or just anyone who wants to keep Canberra a clean, healthy and beautiful city – pick up a few butts that are lying around. Especially in our national parks. Sure, someone else made the mistake of not being considerate by dropping their personal waste in the first place, but our environment should not be the one to suffer.
