Bag the Butts™ Toolkits Are Ready! Are You?
April 22, 2022 is Earth Day. This year’s theme is Invest in Our Planet. A great way to join in on Earth Day celebrations is to take part in Breathe New Hampshire’s annual Bag the Butts™ program Take advantage of the nice weather this spring and summer and do a yard, neighborhood, or community clean-up! Bagging the Butts can take place throughout the year, not just on Earth Day.
During your activity take photos of the clean-up and collected cigarette butts. With your participant’s permission, share photos with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or #BagtheButts2022.
Breathe New Hampshire is not responsible for organizing or overseeing the community clean-ups. Local groups and organizations are responsible for supervising youth and adults participating in their community clean-ups.

Thank you to members of the Raymond Coalition for Youth for all their work for Operation Raymond Clean-up! This spring they collected cigarette waste as part of Breathe New Hampshire’s annual Bag the Butts™ program..
Cigarette butts remain one of the world’s greatest environmental litter problems, taking up to 10
years to decompose and leaching toxins into the ground and water. Breathe New Hampshire's Bag the Butts™ program has been promoting state-wide community clean-ups for over 10 years to raise awareness of the environmental impact of cigarette litter while educating people on the risks associated with tobacco use.
