Youth from Neu-Life Community Development FACT group recently did a cigarette butt clean-up that educated the youth on how prevalent cigarette butt littering is in their North side neighborhood. The youth did a one hour blitz, where they went out in groups to see which group could collect the most cigarette butts and/or cigarette litter.
They were shocked at how much they each found in such a short amount of time. The youth plan to do more awareness events in 2019 to educate the neighborhood on the amount and impact the littering has on the perception of our neighborhood.
