September's  Spotlight Presentation: TERRACYCLE MUNICIPAL PROGRAM

With presenter Eric Ascalon and Kariina Rand

Cigarette butts are the most littered item on the planet. Up to 80% of the litter tossed on our beaches, parks, roadways, and sidewalks, by unit, is cigarette waste. Cigarette filters consist of a fibrous form of a plastic called cellulose acetate, and when it enters the environment, it causes countless problems. TerraCycle is a mission-based company that develops solutions to recycle many kinds of difficult-to-recycle materials. Among its initiatives,TerraCycle, with its charity partner Keep America Beautiful, offers an innovative free program that allows communities, organizations, businesses, and individuals to recycle cigarette butts, and raise money for a good cause in the process. Learn everything you need to know about implementing this amazing and impactful program in your community from Eric Ascalon, the company's Global Director of Community Development.
