Love Langton ‘Bin Your Butt’ campaign

 Bin Your Butt campaign 

Litter-free Purbeck (of which Love Langton Litter Campaign is part) has teamed up with Wimborne War on Waste and Litter Free Dorset to run a campaign around some of our local bus stops  to highlight the environmental damage caused by cigarette stubs, which are the single most littered item on the planet.  A4 campaign stickers have been placed in the bus stops opposite the Langton Village Store and by The Ship to encourage smokers to bin their butts and these two sites will be monitored for research purposes. Cigarette stubs not only leach toxic chemicals when wet but the filters are made of plastics; both pose a threat to marine life when they get washed into street drains and then out to sea.
