CLPP Tour of Florida

Earlier this year, Loggerhead Marinelife Center was named a Cigarette Litter Prevention Program grant recipient by Keep American Beautiful.  The grant has allowed us to purchase cigarette receptacles for interested Responsible Pier Initiative partners.  We immediately began planning our road trip and packing our tools.

Implementation began yesterday on our very own Juno Beach Pier.  In the next eight days, we will visit 14 piers, travel a total of 1,459 miles, and install 47 cigarette receptacles.  We will conduct a preliminary litter survey on each pier and the surrounding beaches, counting the cigarette butts we find along the way.  Soon, cigarette receptacles will make their way to Texas, Virginia, and Puerto Rico as well.

More photos of our travels are coming soon!
