A gift from Operation Montreal.Net

Spouse brought me home a little gift from the city yesterday. It’s a little carrying pouch for your cigarette butts. (Not that you smoke, but sadly, we do.) I have noticed that downtown is far more cleanly than in the past. august%20095.jpgI know I’ve adopted the habit of seeking out a cigarette butt receptacle now that there are so many lining the storefronts. And I think others have started doing that as well, because there seem to be far fewer butts strewn about on the sidewalk and in the gutters. I’m going to keep this handy pouch in my bag now just in case I can’t find a suitable place for my cigarette butt. The pouches are free from the city and from any borough office. If you click this link, you can see a Radio-Canada spot on the new pouches being distributed by the city. You can also read about the city’s Operation Montreal.Net campaign here.

    In Australia, people I went on expeditions with used empty photo film rolls… Small, closed off well…
