SHOW THE TRUTH: Pollution prevention advocates from the EcoWaste Coalition join the “World No Tobacco Day” parade in support of Congressional approval of picture-based health warning law to raise awareness on the hazards of tobacco use and exposure to second hand smoke. The green activists also drew attention to the problematic disposal of cigarette butts – “the most littered toxic waste in the country” – that disperse stored chemicals, toxins and tars to the environment when discarded.
