how long does it take for a cigarette filter to decompose?

    Cigarette filters are made from plastics, which are not biodegradable. We are actually not certain how long it takes plastics to decompose, if they even do, so we cannot be sure how long it takes cigarette butts to decompose. However, sources have stated that it can take anywhere between 18 months and 10 years for a cigarette butt to decompose. Plastics can photodegrade, which is how they break down eventually.

    Cigarette filters are made, largely, from cellulose acetate, derived from wood pulp.
