Clean up toxic cigarette butts
As London sheds its winter coat of snow, beneath it lies a toxic scourge: littered cigarette butts. Cigarette butts not only make our streets look terrible, their toxins seep into the sewers, contaminate our waterways and poison fish and other animals. 
These pellets of pollution are at their most potent right now: after the snow has melted and before the cigarette filters leach their toxic chemicals into the ground and sewage drains.
That’s why London City Council must act now to introduce a butt removal task force, to be deployed ASAP to stop cigarette butts from poisoning our water and fish.
A massive petition from tax-paying Londoners demanding this common-sense solution will show city council that it’s time for action. Will you add your name before toxins seep into our sewers?
