Mccartney Supports Anti-litter Campaign

SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY has joined the fight against litter on Britain's beaches - designing his own surfboard to raise funds for the campaign.
The former Beatle is concerned about the state of seaside resorts in his native U.K. and is backing an initiative by Surfers Against Sewage - aiming to clean up beaches around the country.
MCCartney has designed an eco-friendly surfboard which will go under the hammer at London auction house Bonhams in October (08).
Other stars to have joined the campaign include British artists Tracey Emin and Gavin Turk.

ask MCCartney to support me!!I am currently in a contest hosted by Timberland with there EarthKeepers site, to be a Change Agent, to help finance a great environmental cause...anyone that is environmentally conscious, please check out my site: www.changents.com/ResponsibleSmokersActthen register and "back" my "cause". If i get enough attention i might be able to make this life long dream of mine, come true. I was born on Earth Day of '78 and from about 13 years i have tried to gain interest in someone else to help for this non profit. My organization hopes to educate on the environmental impact of cigarette litter. But what makes this idea unique, is that i want to collect cigarettes to make cigarette collection facilities out of them. which in turn print educational material on them....in a way a self-sustaining perpetual infrastructure. Anyone that smokes or just hates cigarette litter or environmental hearted please join me and help make Responsible Smokers Act a realityI am asking for obvious partners of sponsors, lawyers, accountants,web designers, graphic artist, photographers, environmental and civil servants, please if you think you can offer anything that would solve the problem of cancerous materials being littered by the trillions into everyday surroundings. I will give anyone a chance to do there part for the EarthIf you have seen the movie Erin Brocovich. the environmental moral of that story is... Sometimes small doses, administered over a long time, makes our bodies absorb the same chemicals as if you where to smoke the original cigarette itself. * Cigarette pollution cost millions to our public utilities in each state.* Animals can very easily dies from the ingestion of small amounts of Butts. * Cigarettes are made from cellulose Acetate, which is a host for the Bioaccumulotoxins, which delivers those thousand of cancerous chemicals to everywhere humans exists, our environment!This seems to be the decade of GREEN living, i hope this gives me my chance to form a group to make a great impact on the world!!please re-post this to any Green person or smokerResponsible Smokers Act www.changents.com/ResponsibleSmokersActwww.myspace.com/Earthday78Thanks everyone!Mike Davis

Cigarette Litter - An unseen environmental dangerI would like to draw attention to a problem which is largely forgotten.Visit www.buttless.org for more information on how to sponsor a local or regional campaign today. Buttless products are the number 1 choice for governments and Businesses around the world.Government and environmental agencies worldwide are spending millions of tax dollars tackling a problem that until recently has been largely unnoticed.Cigarette litter has impacted on our environment to such an extent that it has become a focal point for top level governmental discussions worldwide.Visual aids used to educate smokers about the harmful effects of their carelessness are easy enough, but proving to be ineffective. Innocently perhaps, smokers are generally unaware of the damage their littering causes the environmet.Many Government and business organisations in Australia, USA, United Kingdom and further afield have put their corporate name and branding to support local and national anti-cigarette litter campaigns using ButtLess Personal Ashtrays.Worldwide indoor smoking bans, whilst valid and necessary have had the counter effect of forcing millions of smokers to smoke outside. With this comes unsightly, unpleasant and unhealthy littering, as the butts will generally be cast off wherever they have finished their cigarette.The Number one choice for city officials around the world the ButtLess Personal Ashtray has a depressed button designed to ensure it can never be opened accidentally and is finished in a range of attractive colours making them practical, attractive and safe to use. It is these features plus the excellent advertising and promotion space on the unit that has seen customers keep returning and working together with us to help improve their local environment.UK Tel: +44 (0) 208 133 9336Email: sales@buttless.orgUSA Tel: +1 954 415 5345Fax: +44 (0) 700 596 1336
