I praise you for pushing for it. Most smokers feel tossing a butt isn't litter, happens every moment of every day. I've been to some gulfcoast beaches in Florida that are smoke free-love it!!! It's so beautiful & nice to walk the beaches & not see cig butts littering the shore/water. The residents get out & help to educate the public regarding no smoking plus signs are up. They do provide smoking areas off the beach. But you still have some who will continue to light up & don't care about trashing the beach. Siesta Key, FL is the #1 beach in the nation, no smoking & it hasn't stopped the tourists coming in by the 1000s.
