Cigarette butts are toxic waste that contain carcinogens (benzopyrene, formaldehyde) and poisons (arsenic, lead, toluene, cadmium, nicotine).
They also contain a cigarette filter made of non-biodegradable plastic (cellulose acetate). These substances and chemicals spill into water and into the soil.
Cigarette butts are the most common type of litter on Earth, in streets, lakes and oceans, with 4,500 billion cigarette butts discarded in nature every year, that is 1.7 billion pounds of plastic and harmful chemicals.
When they are not retrieved, cigarette butts dropped on sidewalks move on to the street drains, and so end up in streams, rivers and oceans.

One cigarette butt can pollute up to 500 litres of water.
Experiments have shown that one cigarette butt soaked in 4 litres of water kills all the water fleas within it, these small crustaceans which purify water and which are a food source for many fish.
One cigarette butt per litre kills the fish themselves.
The Ownbox allows us to avoid discarding our cigarette butts in nature, thanks to its ashtray that can contain 15 cigarette butts at once, for a cleaner planet.
