ÉcoMégot has developed a range of several ashtrays to combat the throwing of cigarette butts in public spaces. To complete our cigarette butt management solution , we provide our customers with pocket, portable and airtight ashtrays .
Pocket ashtrays: what objectives?
Although more and more ashtrays are available and accessible in public spaces, they are not yet on every street corner. In this objective of reducing cigarette butts on the public highway, it is necessary to succeed in capturing the moment when smokers will throw away their cigarettes. Therefore, a portable and completely airtight pocket ashtray is one of the best things to save our environment from the pollution of these toxic wastes . Once the pocket ashtray is filled, simply throw the flux into an ashtray or a suitable place.
The pocket ashtray empowers citizens in the face of this massive pollution. It allows everyone to manage these cigarette butts and thus make a gesture for the planet. The pocket ashtray is more than a goodie. Above all, it is a lever of awareness that helps to drive changes in behavior.
Customizable and Made In France pocket ashtrays.
Like all our ashtrays, our pocket ashtrays are 100% customizable with the colors and logos of your companies, communities, schools. They are designed in France in accordance with the principles of sustainable development.
The closing system of these ashtrays allows no diffusion of odor and no risk of accidental opening of the ashtray. Designed to fit in pockets, our pocket ashtrays can be transported anywhere and at any time.
What uses for pocket ashtrays?
Pocket ashtrays can be distributed to your employees, citizens, students or even festival-goers. We have already experimented with the distribution of pocket ashtrays at the entrance to beaches this summer and the results are more than conclusive. It is possible to imagine the distribution of ashtrays at the entrance of a festival and to provide a voluntary drop-off point at the exit, to recover the cigarette butts collected during your event.
Pocket ashtrays to fight against pollution. ?
Nearly 12 billion cigarette butts are thrown away every day around the world . But what are the reasons for such pollution? We have collected testimonials from students who tell us about their problems:
“Today, when you want to throw away your cigarette, there aren’t really any obvious solutions. Certainly there are sometimes garbage cans, but we are always afraid that it will catch fire. Personally, I am careful because I am aware of the subject, but I can understand some people who do not have this sensitivity and who throw their cigarette butts on the ground.
In Paris alone, if all smokers had a pocket ashtray, we could avoid throwing away 10 million cigarette butts every day, or nearly 350 tonnes of waste.
Everyone must take responsibility for this scourge and the pocket ashtray is the perfect alternative to throwing cigarette butts on the ground !
