Cigarette Buttson / Product for environment

Cigarette Buttson
Cigarette Buttson

Cigarette Buttson is a portable cigarette case that gathers cigarette butts.

Some smokers throw their cigarette butts on the floor without separating them. It causes urban waste and environmental problems. Microplastics in the cigarette butts flow into the sea and destroy the marine ecosystem. Finally, those creatures will be on our table.

We remove the fundamental cause with Cigarette Buttson, giving the forcedness to the action disposing of the cigarette butts. The user must put his cigarette butts into the case to get the next one. This principle limits action throwing the cigarette away to the ground.
