Good morning Squids πŸ¦‘πŸ¦‘πŸ¦‘πŸ¦‘

βœ…βœ…Quick remind to the smokers 😬😬

πŸ”΄πŸ”΄Butts are in the first place among the pollutants and waste produced by humans, and each year they end up in different seas and oceans. Most of the 5.6 trillion cigarettes produced per year have a filter made of cellulose acetate that takes more than 10 years to decompose.
According to the data from the Cigarette Butt Pollution Project, about two thirds of these filters, which are not biodegradable, are dumped on beaches or streets 😒

πŸ”΄πŸ”΄πŸ”΄Please NEVER leave your butts, are highly contaminated. #savetheplanet #savetheocean #makethechange #paditv #environment #scubadiving #ukdiving #girlsthatscuba
