Cigarettes aren’t only bad for your health but statistics point out that they’re even worse for the environment. According to recent statistics, about 1.1 billion people in the world are smokers and about 10 million cigarettes are purchased every minute around the world. Apart from creating a plume of toxic gases, cigarettes leave a much longer effect on the environment in the form of cigarette butts. Cigarette butts can take up to 12 years to degrade. Moreover, a new study has rated cigarette butts as one of the most ubiquitous forms of garbage in the world that have been found to be toxic to saltwater and freshwater fish. Cigarette butts are what many eco-minded artists collect and transform into artwork or bring to other unconventional uses, which in most cases, encourages individuals to give up smoking and protect not only their own self but the environment as well. Check out 10 such pieces of art that have been created entirely from cigarette butts:
