That´s how we done it…

Every week...

D

on’t miss the progress of the #StopButts, we have set ourselves the goal of collecting 30,000 butts in 90 days… And you will witness it! From October 1st we travel through different natural environments of Galicia: beaches, forests and mountains, as well as some urban spaces close to these environments.

The collected butts...

They are deposited in recycled plastic bottles of 1.5 liters, which can accommodate approximately 800 butts. At the end of the campaign, we'll have a total of 37 bottles with 30,000 butts collected.

Firts Week

2.300 cigarette butts...

We walk with the certainty of knowing that every step we take brings us closer to our goal, that which seems unattainable… We’ve already collected the first 2,300 cigarette butts! We blindly trust our possibilities, we are in this together, the planet needs our help, and we are willing to give it to you!

Second Week

4.600 cigarette butts...

A goal without a plan is just a wish… And we have a plan, which we follow every day to reach the goal we have set ourselves. Second week of campaign and we’ve already collected 4,600 cigarette butts! We still have a long way to go, but the motivation remains intact, we will continue to work to clean up the planet every day!

Third Week

6.900 cigarette butts...

Difficult does not mean impossible… that’s the mentality with which we’ve started this campaign, and the mindset we work with every day for the protection and conservation of the environment! Many say it’s impossible to do anything for the planet, we say it’s already 6,900 fewer butts polluting our environment!

Third Week

9.200 cigarette butts...

The essence of life is to always go forward… and so we continue in this process that we have proposed, always forward! We reached the fourth week of the campaign, with some new mobility restrictions for the pandemic that is falling on us, yet the cigarette butts keep popping up everywhere, it’s already 9,200 cigarette butts!

Fifth Week

11.500 cigarette butts...

Those who move mountains began by setting aside small stones… In our case, we’ve started with a few butts. We´re almost at the equator of this campaign and there are already 11,500 cigarettes butts that we´ve removed from different natural environments, as well as some urban spaces, and well not stop until we meet our objective.

Sixth Week

15.000 cigarette butts...

Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet… So it’s time to be patient and wait for this global situation ending and allow us to start a new and different normality. Mobility restrictions continue in our community (Galicia, Spain), yet we continue to advance in this campaign, we’ve already collected 13,800 cigarette butts from natural environments!

Campaign Completed!
