Cigarette butts are made out of what?

As part of the Source Reduction Plan workshops that we held earlier this year around Port Phillip Bay, three local projects addressing cigarette butt litter were developed. This included surveying smokers, and we were surprised that many people didn’t realise cigarette butts are actually made out of plastic. To help close this knowledge gap, we’ve created a few resources which you can download from our website.
