The BoatU.S. Foundation reports that the 43 marinas that participated in its 2010 Cigarette Litter Prevention Program saw a 63 percent average reduction in the amount of cigarette litter that would have gone into the water.
Now, the non-profit that promotes boating safety and clean water is looking for more marinas to join its 2011 program. Marinas have until May 2 to apply here. Marinas that are selected will receive funds to cover the cost of ash receptacles and a supply of portable ashtrays.
