Smoking Ban

Cigarettes are the #1 most littered item in America and the world. Their filters are made of cellulose acetate tow, not cotton, and they can take decades to degrade. Toxic residue in cigarette filters is known to be damaging to the environment.

Cigarette butts aren’t just ugly; they also threaten wildlife. Plastic pieces have been found in the stomachs of fish, birds, whales and other marine creatures that mistake them for food.

When eaten, the toxins in cigarette butts also can also make small children sick. The most common symptoms are vomiting, nausea, lethargy, gagging, and a pale or flushed appearance.

I agree; it's a sad day for Wrightsville Beach.
