    I’m so glad I put down the packs. Don’t get me wrong I still hit one or two every once and a while but now that I have laid off them they just seem so unattractive now. Smh.

    I grew up in Huntington Beach surfing 🏄🏻‍♀️ and when I was hiking Haleakala crater on Maui I started to pick up cigarette butts and tell my pockets are full in the early 70s. Every action has a reaction be a positive!

    Two options to completely solve the cigarette but issue.....stop smoking....no butts no problem.......stop putting filters on cigarettes.....paper and tobacco easily biodegrade. ....no filters no butts no problem.

    If you want to stop this the answer is so simple. When someone buys a pack give them a one dollar discount for 20 butts returned.

    Quit smoking, it's the best option.

    What happens when the surfboard is broken? You put it in the trash 🗑??

    Small change can do a lot. I wash glass jars and use them for storage and as smoothie containers. Fill them up, screw on the lid and put them in the fridge and when you want them, you can drink straight out of the jar.
