No Butts Trail

Cigarette butts are tiny, but they’re really bad news for the environment. If littered, they can cause fires and leach toxic chemicals into our soil and water.

Don't be a tosser, make sure you bin your butts (or carry a pocket ashtray with you) to keep our beaches, natural areas and waterways clean.

Explore the No Butts Trail and enter to win!
