Earth Week Bulldog Butt Hunt


Let’s Clear the Air … Join us for an Earth Week Bulldog Butt Hunt
April 18th 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (rain date, April 19th)
In front of the Anlyan Center (TAC) 300 Cedar Street
Did you know that cigarette butts:

  • are the most frequently littered item?*
  • are made up of materials that can last in the environment for up to 10 years?*
  • travel from our city streets into runoff, polluting our lakes, rivers and the Long Island sound and killing fish and wildlife?*

In celebration of Earth Week, Tobacco-Free Yale has teamed up with the Office of Sustainability and Being Well at Yale to sponsor the Bulldog Butt Hunt. We are calling all citizen scientists to help us collect cigarette butts throughout the designated smoking areas and other hot spots on the Medical School campus. Data collected will help assess and improve the environmental impacts of tobacco-related litter as we move toward a Tobacco-Free campus.

All participants will be provided with gloves and collection bags plus some fun Tobacco-Free Yale swag.  A special appearance from Boola the Bulldog will help kick off the event. No need to stay the full hour, but please register to help us plan.

Contact for questions.
