Cigarette Butt Receptacles
#1 marine contaminant
Cigarettes are the number one marine contaminant and we pick them up by the bucket at our beach clean ups. We’ve partnered with Keep America Beautiful and are installing these cigarette receptacles at businesses all around the harbor.
Upcycle with teracycle
We will be emptying these receptacles and sending the butts to Teracycle where they will be recycled into industrial pallets. Cigarette butts are made of Cellulose Acetate Fiber (a form of plastic), are toxic, and much too often end up on the ground and in our oceans. This is a solution we are excited about, and these can be found at local businesses like the Half Moon Bay Brewing Co., Mavericks Event Center, Mavericks Surf Shop, and the Old Princeton Landing. #beaseahugger
