Story Behind This Mural

This mural was created in partnership with Surfrider Foundation San Diego to highlight their <a href=”https://sandiego.surfrider.org/hotyb/”>Hold On To Your Butt</a> program. It aims to raise awareness about the environmental impact of cigarette butt litter on our oceans, waves and beaches, and to help eliminate cigarette butt litter in San Diego County and beyond. Cigarette butts account for approximately one in every five items collected during our beach cleanups. Often littered on our sidewalks and streets, they end up in our storm drains, flowing to our streams, rivers, bays, lagoons and ultimately the ocean.

The Focus

Plastics and non biodegradable trash such as cigarette butts

Take Action

Reduce your own plastic footprint by

  • Using a reusable water bottle and avoiding drinks bottled in plastic
  • Bringing your own bag, cup, utensils, straw, etc.
  • Shopping in bulk, reducing packaging waste
  • Choosing reusable and compostable goods over less sustainable materials
