On Sunday, Jan. 12, from 10 AM-12 PM, in multiple locations,
students from all Maui County High Schools will be combing Maui County beaches in search of
cigarette butts. Led by the Maui District Student Council Organization (MDSCO), and partnership
with Coalition for a Tobacco Free Hawai'i, Sustainable Coastlines, Surfrider Foundation Maui,
and Community Work Day / Malama Maui Nui, this event is a chance for students and adults to
take care of Maui, and to document precisely how cigarette butts are infiltrating Maui Beaches.
This is grass roots, student-driven activism, with an eye on using this information to educate the
Public and the County Council on the number one item found at Beach Cleanups: Cigarette butts.
