What is this commitment about? You can make an important contribution to the cleanest possible low-pollution water cycle by disposing of your cigarette butts responsibly and not throwing them on the street or in nature, because there they can be particularly problematic for our groundwater. After all, one cigarette can poison 40-60l of water.
What are 5-Minute Commitments? With our 5-Minute Commitments, we want to inspire you to easily integrate commitment into your everyday life. They are independent of non-profit organizations and allow you to individually get involved with people and nature in your neighborhood.
Disposing of your cigarette butts properly and not simply throwing them out on the street or into nature is easier than you think. Because by now, most trash cans in public spaces have extra cigarette bins that you can use. But if you're out and about and there's no trash can nearby, you can take an ashtray with you for the road. Otherwise, cigarette butts belong in the residual waste.
But also make sure, especially near bodies of water, that you dispose of cigarette butts properly, as they release toxins through contact with water.
No special requirements are necessary for this commitment.
You can get this commitment done in no time.
This project is location independent.
We are a social enterprise from Berlin with a big dream: We want a world in which everyone contributes to a better and more sustainable future according to their possibilities and regardless of time budget, language or previous knowledge. For this purpose, we gather on vostel.de numerous engagement offers from non-profit organizations that are looking for volunteers. By doing this, we show concrete possibilities for action in order to become socially active and would like to motivate above all the younger generations to get involved for a better world.More about the organisation
