Keep your butts to yourself

Date: 1/8/2004

Manly, one of Australia’s most famous and picturesque seaside tourist destinations is to become Australia’s first local authority to stamp out smoking on its beach. Such a ban makes Manly the first area outside Los Angeles to ban smoking.  The ban aims to stop the environmental damage caused by cigarette butts and reduce litter.  The ban will also address the problem of passive smoking and health.  Other councils throughout Australia are considering implementing the ban; these include Bondi and Port Philip Bay, Melbourne.
