I try not to get up on a soapbox too often in these pages, but last night when I was walking my dog I saw something that was really disappointing - one of my neighborhood lawns covered in cigarette butts.

I live in a nicely maintained condo complex. Most in the neighborhood keep their areas clean and neat.

So it surprised me when I walked past one unit in particular that had a lawn teeming with cigarette butts.

They were contained enough that I have to assume that it was the work of the people who live there, and not just causal smokers passing by. I was pretty perplexed that someone would take such little pride in their own property.

And today I was at a light on my way to work when I saw two different people drop cigarettes right out of their car windows.

People, cigarette butts are litter!

Oh, and by the way, as I sit here in our beachfront studio, there's a guy right outside who has been smoking a cigar for the past half hour. Almost directly in front of a "No Smoking" sign.

Do you still see areas covered in cigarette butts and people dropping them out of their windows? Comment below and chime in!
