A good friend of mine, Rebecka Dahlén, was running a photo gallery. During the openings cigarette butts was filling the street outside, and she didn´t like it. I understand why. So, together with a friend she came up with this idea of Don Dobbin.
“a small, fireproof and non smelling disposable pouch for cigarette stubs that can be placed directly into a pocket or into the waste bin.”
I think the idea is great and I wish they could find money for the production. The product is universal and would make a big difference for our environment. Read more on her homepage about the product that really can make a difference. And, if you can come up with an idea to start the production, or to find funds for it, I will be happy to pass the idea, or contact, along.
The cigarette industry is crazy, just look at these packages that I have photographed. Who came up with this brilliant idea to the “Peace”package?
I remember something funny I read a long time ago. “An ashtray is something a smoker use if the room doesn´t have a floor…”. Perhaps not so funny after all.
The featured image is one I made for an exhibition at the gallery raising attention to the butt problem.
