                Good move. There's a lot of littering happening because of cigarette butts

                  As much as they clear the "mess"created by their consumers,they should also find other ways of disposal that might solve the whole situation

                    This decision is a positive step towards environmental preservation. Cigarette ends are a major source of litter and can take many years to degrade, causing harm to wildlife and the environment. By holding tobacco companies accountable for their products, this initiative will help to reduce the amount of cigarette-related litter and ultimately protect the environment for future generations.

                          Disposal awareness should be made to the Cigarettes smokers.

                            Cigarettes' filters should be discarded in a rightful manner.

                              This initiative will keep cigar manufacturing companies on toes on matters maintaining environmemt and perherps come up with a way of making decomposable cigarrete ends.

                                Putting this responsibility on the companies might ensure some sort of discipline and sobriety from their consumers perhaps by sensitizing them more on better disposal ways of the waste cigars.
