Upon research over cigarette butts, it was found that the cigarette butts are made up of cellulose acetate which looks like cotton but plastic in reality. Also, a single cigarette butt can contaminate more than 1 litre of water if disposed inappropriately and takes more than 10 years to decompose naturally. The chemicals trapped by a cigarette butt also leech into the environment and cause serious impact on marine and aquatic life leading to land and water degradation. As per general surveys, an estimate 4.5 trillion cigarette butts are disposed worldwide making it the most littered item globally.
