Monaco zero butt

Description:

As an extension of Monaco Plage Propre , the Monaco City Hall wanted to take new actions to limit pollution by cigarette butts and move towards a ""Monaco Zero Mégot"! Thus, EcoMégot terminals have been set up in the 2019 Christmas Village for the first time. In total, 5,371 cigarette butts were collected in these new terminals during the event before being subsequently recovered and recycled. So many cigarette butts that will not end up in the sea (through the gutters in which they are often thrown), or 2,675,500 liters of potentially unpolluted water - equivalent to 13,377 200-liter baths! The EcoMégot terminals were dispatched to the various municipal sites at the end of the event in order to continue this action.
