California woman picks up 1 million cigarette butts

This task has taken her years to complete.Related Content: Smoking even 1 cigarette a day increases heart disease, stroke risk, new research shows

She hit half a million in Aug., 2016, and Dawly says she’s not stopping!

“I’ll probably continue because I don’t like seeing them down there where animals can get them or they can get washed down into a drain,” Dawly said.

She hopes her efforts will inspire others to just make two changes in their lives: Throw away cigarette butts and stop smoking, period.
