note to cigarette smokers...
your filtered butts add up
just because you do not see it as trash it is still trash
that trash adds up
thrown to the curb and right into the gutter
the stuff in the gutter goes into streams and creeks
then the rivers
then the bay
then to the market, the restaurant, and your plate
lisa and I walked to columbia heights tonight
we ate outside
patio dining at the heights
we watched the sidewalk city traffic as we sipped drinks and had some dinner
lisa had tuna
I had crab cakes
which means I had crab cakes and tuna
and a steamed mussel appetizer
even without consideration of The Bay and your dinner
the cigarette but is trash
as small as it is
life is cumulative
it all adds up
do the math... how many cigarettes a day?
what would the mass be if in one place at the end of the year?
substancial enough that it is more than you would throw out of your car window all at once?
