Green gasp

The global tobacco industry is responsible for 1.7% of each year’s deforestation. If all 5.5 trillion cigarettes produced each year were smoked they would produce the same emmissions as half the vehicles on the road in the US. 40% of beach litter is cigarette butts.

Not only choking our lungs, but choking the lungs of the planet too, apparently. Blimey.
