Cigarette, Butt What? / Eco-friendly material

Cigarette, Butt What?
Cigarette, Butt What?

Since 1954, over 4.5 trillion of them have been littered annually; as a result, tons of toxic chemicals have been washed out into the environment and have polluted our planet.

We, “ Cigarette, Butt What? ,”reintroduce them as functional products.

“ Cigarette, Butt What? ” coin case is a new angle to view cigarette filters. We view them with a cross-section angle. This point of view provides a circle appearance, symbolizing sustainability, and the white appearance of the “ Cigarette, Butt What? ” coin case is a result of dissolving toxins out of the cigarette filters, as we eliminate the harmful man-made garbage from our surroudings.
