Abby Zimet

With 176 million pounds of smoking, stinking, toxic butts tossed each
year, a New York Assemblyman has proposed the country's first cigarette
butt recycling law. It seems the Chinese are
already recycling the chemicals in them to protect steel pipes from
rusting, which might make any of you over the famously foolish age of 20
or so think twice about putting that stuff in your lungs, or maybe
not. 

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do. Without Your Support We Simply Won't Exist.
