Despite the fact that it is difficult for smokers to reconcile a desire to help the environment, and their environmentally harmful habit, many smokers are attempting to make up for that by recycling their cigarette butts. While this is a slow growing trend it is all the more noteworthy because who doesn’t want to make things right in one way or another. We’d all love to see a healthier environment and altogether greater earth but few are willing to actually taker the steps in helping to further that goal.
By recycling their cigarette butts smokers are showing that they are not only responsible but that they are also aware that their habit could be dangerous to the environment. With new technology like great electronic cigarette starter kits being made available to the general public it seems that smokers in general are waking up to the fact that there are better ways to go about the nicotine habit.
It’s a little known fact that it takes cigarettes years to biodegrade making the normal dump a seemingly bad place for them to be. By recycling their cigarette butts, smokers are not only insuring that the cigarette butts never get there in the first place but they are also helping to make them used for something better. This generally responsible attitude towards what has always seemed so irresponsible is surely a trend that will become more and more popular as time goes by.
