Businesses, colleges, parks, and communities across the world struggle with the #1 litter problemcigarette litter.
Earth Talk (a column written by The Environmental Magazine) distributed a column on October 23, 2009 in which cigarette litter was discussed.The “unnamed” author of the article DID NOT CALL OR INTERVIEW ANY MEMBERS of Clean Virginia Waterways' STAFF or VOLUNTEERS yet inserted numerous misleading and highly inaccurate quotes purportedly made by CVW’s executive director, Kathleen Register.The article grossly misrepresents the established position of Clean Virginia Waterways regarding litter prevention as well as Ms. This misuse of a media forum undermines the significant litter prevention efforts that CVW has developed during the past 10 years working with other litter prevention organizations and partners in the tobacco industry.Conservation organizations rely upon the honesty and professionalism of the media to disseminate important information to the public; CVW is disappointed that Earth Talk's article did not meet these standards.Litter can be picked up by volunteers or by paid employees.Hiring people to pick up smoking-related litter can cost a business, park, or school a great deal of money.
According to the Philadelphia Daily News (March 27, 2000) Penn State estimates that its landscapers spend 10 hours a week picking up discarded cigarettes at an estimated cost of 0,000.Some businesses also have their employees pick up litter from parking lots, entrances, and landscaped areas."Adopt a Spot," "Adopt a Park" and other adoption programs involve volunteers in cleaning certain areas.Some schools encourage student groups to Adopt a Spot on campus which they clean at least twice a year.Cleanups are also also organized by nonprofit groups, including the International Coastal Cleanup, an annual worldwide event organized by The Ocean Conservancy.Some states, including Virginia, have prisoners pick up litter along highways.
