Schedule a Visit by Mother Earth!
You’ve seen her before. You know what she represents. So, isn’t it time that she visits your school or place of business to talk about the impact of litter on all of us, whether human, plant or animal? Contact us at email@example.com
Need a speaker for an event?
Whether it’s for a school, a business, a homeowner’s association, the Lions, or the Rotary, we’ve got a tailored speaker for your event. Board members have spoken at many different Cape events and are always looking for more opportunities to spread the word about the hazards of littering and the beauty of a litter free Cape Cod. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you interested in hearing more about how to start an Ambassador program in your town? What is it? It’s a group of like-minded individuals who are concerned about the amount of litter being found in their town. Sometimes they arrange for a cleanup and other times they form a think-tank to come up with new ideas for prevention. Interested in getting a group together? Contact us.
Need A Good Book?
During 2021 and 2022, CCALC gifted copies of Critters Don’t Litter to all Cape & Islands’ libraries to encourage young people to think about the negative impacts of littering. The book is also entered into the CLAMS system. The author, Adele A. Roberts, wrote this charming book to facilitate educating both children and parents about the negative effects of littering. Check it out!
Cigarette Waste Recycling
The fact that cigarette butts can be recycled is no reason to continue smoking; however, it is a reason for smokers to safely manage their butts or even store them for eventual recycling rather than just tossing them on the ground.
CCALC has formed a partnership with TerraCycle to isolate cigarette butts for collection and delivery to a recycling company. What? Are you surprised that cigarette butts can be recycled? Click on the links below to find out what happens to this pervasive waste.
CCALC wants to work with municipalities, businesses, and individuals to manage cigarette and cigar waste. Contact email@example.com to find out the specifics.
Cigarette Program accepted waste: Extinguished cigarettes, cigarette filters, loose tobacco pouches, outer plastic packaging, inner foil packaging, rolling paper, and ash. The cigarette box should be placed in your paper recycling bin.
CCALC’s mission is all about changing attitudes and behaviors leading to the prevention of litter and a clean Cape Cod. While board members do routinely pick up litter individually as well as participate in town-wide, ocean and canal cleanups, our focus needs to remain on prevention.
For example, board members and friends from CCALC participated in several clean up events on Monomoy Island during both summer and winter. We’re proud that The Friends of Monomoy were the first financial supporter of CCALC. Considering that land-based litter can easily get into our waterbodies resulting in negative impacts to aquatic life, their continued support and partnership is not surprising.
