Los Angeles Chapter

Hold On To Your Butt


Over 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are littered every year. Our goal is to cut down on cigarette butt pollution in our community so that dirty butts don’t wind up on the beaches we all love. In the coming months, cigarette disposal ashcans will be installed along the coast from Marina del Rey to the Ventura County line. Butts collected through our ashcans will recycled through TerraCycle!


We have a lot of butt kicking to do and would love your help! Interested in learning more and volunteering? Email us at hotyb@wlam.surfrider.org
