Hi my name is Lauryn McCann and the Kiwanis K-kids group spent two Fridays cleaning up cigarette butts and that is technically polluting our earth.
Did you know that cigarette butts last for 18-25 years?
So we (the Kiwanis K-kids) have an idea on what to do with your cigarette butt when you are done. We thought you could buy a little pouch and when you’re in your car instead of throwing it out of your window, just make sure it is put out then put it in a little pouch and then throw it away when you get home.
Thank you,
Lauryn McCann

I am Sarah Vogt. I am a K-Kid. About three weeks ago, we picked up about 6,000 cigarette butts. We each picked up about 300. That was a lot of cigarettes. I want to tell all people that smoke to put their cigarette butts in ash trays.
Did you know that cigarette butts do not break down? It takes about 18-25 years! That is a lot of years!
Thank you,
Sarah Vogt
