There are many ways to reduce your environmental impact while travelling, and certainly one of them is to limit and dispose of your own waste. Take care not to leave anything behind while visiting the city, you will find plenty of waste bins at your disposal.
Cigarette butts are one of the materials that are slower to decompose: you can extinguish a cigarette on the rim of the purpose-made bins, then throw the butt inside.
Please note: smoking is always forbidden indoors, with the exception of some specially dedicated areas. In some parts of Milano, it is also prohibited to smoke outdoors, such as on public transport stops, in public green areas (unless there is a distance of at least 10 metres between people), in children’s playgrounds and in dog areas. In 2025, Milano will become a completely smoke-free city in all public areas.
We are working towards becoming increasingly plastic-free, and you too can make a difference, for example by requesting reusable and non-plastic straws as you enjoy a cocktail or an aperitif, or by bringing a canvas bag with you for shopping. Every small step helps!
