A Canadian Best for Community Clean-Ups.
While we look to curb new tobacco-related waste being produced, we know that the waste already in our communities needs immediate removal before it leaches into soils and waterways. Remediation becomes infinitely challenging when the problem continues to build.
Our efforts contribute to a change in consumer; community; government and industrial behaviours around single-use plastic waste. We also work to inspire communities that every day is a Clean-Up Day: Take charge and take pride in your public parks and spaces.
Our Jam One in the Can! signature clean-up event broke all records in 2019, recycling over 640,000 butts in one day! We look forward to hosting more major clean-up events in Victoria, including our newest event, the Celebrity Battle of the Butts! Our group members also collect waste year-round, removing many more microplastic-containing butts from Victoria each year.
