#Fillthebottle

World Economic Forum reports French teenagers have started a global cleanup of cigarette butts. Cigarette butts are the most common types of litter on the planet and despite being small, they are a huge problem.

Most cigarette filters are made of plastic. They can take years to biodegrade and contain toxins which can leak into the environment harming marine life and entering food chain.

When a French teenager tweeted a picture of cigarette butts he had collected, the hashtag #Fillthebottle went viral. Volunters around the world joined in. Once collected, butts can be recycled into plastic products. World Economic Forum urges to take action and #Fillthebottle.
