No Butts Campaign

On  this project, two Trinity college students approached the site in relation to the recycling of cigarette butts.

The students had a plan in relation to the reuse of cigarette butts and have developed the ‘No butts campaign’. The students provided bins called stashtrays for use in the smoking area on site where workers now dispose of butts in the bin.

The butts are collected from the site stashtray by ‘No Butts’ pending the usage onsite. The plastic in cigarette butts is a single use plastic where 6 trillion cigarette butts are wasted annually.

The plastic from the recycled butts is now reused in manufacturing and can be used for any purpose. Some examples for the reuse of the plastic is swipe cards and plastic glasses.
