Tuesday, June 12, 2007

1 bottle of water (16.9 fl.oz.)
1 slice of sausage/pepperoni/bell pepper/onion pizza
2 sausage dogs
3 lg coffees (light/sweet)
3-5 sm cups of water
1/4-1/2 pack of cigarettes

Smokes, Sand, Salad:

Though smoking cigarettes is a filthy and deadly habit, think tobacco companies could do more to help smokers from at least littering.

1st: change the filters from the current synthetic material to a biodegradable one (cotton).

2nd: attach a small resealable pouch to the outside plastic wrap (about the size of a "dime-quarter" baggie) so smokers could keep the butts till they're closer to a garbage container for disposal.

note: smokers must make sure the used cigarette is *completely* extinguished before storing/disposing.

Fun in Philly:
