Abstract

One easy and practical method is to impose fines for improperly disposing of cigarette butts. Additionally, smokers and the general public must be educated about the dangers of cigarette butts in order to raise their awareness. This might be done through a public advertisement or an interactive campaign. Another efficient method is to place a dedicated garbage container for cigarette butts outside of stores, buildings, bus stops, and parking lots in both formal and informal smoking places. Overall, the most effective strategy to lessen the problem of cigarette butts is to quit smoking.
