Our Campaign

Ban Butts from Our Beaches

Surfrider has long advocated for banning smoking on beaches and parks. Under the new Florida law (HB105 Regulation of Smoking by Counties and Municipalities), counties and municipalities are authorized to restrict smoking within the boundaries of public beaches and parks.

Surfrider’s Space Coast chapter supports local municipal efforts to enact smoking bans to help reduce cigarette butt litter and prevent its harmful effects to our marine life and waters. We are reaching out to our local municipalities to influence their decisions for passing an ordinance.
