Why do smokers think that throwing cigarette butts on the ground is the right thing to do?

Report as

Because they aren't educated in knowing that it takes 20 years for a filter to break down, they don't care about littering and are lazy. Unfortunately, I am a smoker and do not discard any cigarette butts on the ground and I do feel bad about the landfills, however I practice being green in other ways.

I bet you drink bottled water. How many years does it take those bottles to break down?

I drink filtered water from my sink. I do not purchase plastic bottles or have my groceries put in plastic bags. Enjoy your weekend.

They dont think it is the right thing to do. They dont think it is the wrong thing to do either.
With that said.... Smokers JUST DONT THINK when they throw their butts on the ground.

I don't believe that they find it the right thing to do i think they simply do it because there may not be a bin or discarding area to get rid of it so they simply chuck it on the floor... It is definitely not the right thing to do and i highly advise against it if you ever think about doing it.

When you walk your dog you carry a bag to put the mess in. Why couldn't smokers do the same?

If they throw it in the trash it may light on fire

So just because of a person has a bad habit is that justification for that person to pollute everybody's earth?

No, but the question was why not will it pollute.
