The Butt Collector

The Butt Collector is a portable ash tray designed to reduce litter and the
potential for accidently starting fires. This product is currently under
development. Our mission is to provide a better way to extinguish and dispose of
cigarette waste. It is not our mission to regulate or convince anyone of the
dangers of smoking or suggest they should not smoke. Simply put, we want to
help cleanup the environment and minimize risk of fire caused by discarded
burning cigarette butts.

Cigarette butts are the most common form
of litter in the world, as approximately 5.6
trillion cigarettes are smoked every year
worldwide.

Cigarette waste constitutes an estimated
30% of the total litter (by count) on US
shorelines, waterways and on land
(LitterFreePlanet, 2009). In fact, cigarette
butts are the most common debris item
collected along waterways during the
Ocean Conservancy's yearly International
Coastal Cleanup. In all, 2?189?252 cigarettes
were collected during the 2009 cleanup.
(Ocean Conservancy, 2010)
Toxicity

Owing to the ubiquitous nature and
magnitude of cigarette butts discharged
into the environment, studies are needed
to determine whether cigarette butt waste
can exert ecotoxic effects when in aquatic
environments.
