Whether you’re a smoker or not, you’ve probably noticed the growing problem all over the globe that is the cigarette filter or butt. Besides the obvious, there’s a lot that people don’t know about cigarette butts. Many cigarette butts are toxic, they release carcinogenic pollutants that can harm wildlife. Cellulose acetate breathed in from filters has been know to cause lung damage in some cases.
A company appropriately named Green Butts has an amazing and exemplary solution for this worldwide nuisance. Green Butts has patented an idea that not only introduces the most rapidly degrading, safest to smoke butts known to man, the butt can actually be planted in soil or a compost bin! During production, seeds are safely encompassed in an all-natural filter that can sprout into wildflowers! Many individuals haven’t switched to electronic cigarettes because the taste and experience just isn’t the same, but with Green Butts, it is. Not only that, the tobacco used in Green Butt cigarettes is natural and additive free. Green Butts will break down in one month, the same length of time of a banana peel. There are currently plans to sell these filters alone for those who enjoy rolling their own cigarettes as well. Green Butts aims to have their product on shelves by late 2012!
