Biodegradable filters :
Explanation : The residue in the butts/filters contains toxic, soluble chemicals. These chemicals are deadly and add to the existing cocktail of environmental pollution. A lot of people just throw the filters on the ground after smoking their cigarettes, which makes the streets dirty and when it rains it will be carried to our harbors, beaches and rivers, which will have a harmful impact on our water quality.
Those reasons justify why we want to create biodegradable filters. However, after have made some research, we realize that it already exists. Green-buts already have launched natural biodegradable filters. They use them to grow wildflowers. “Simply collect your greenbutts in a planter instead of an ashtray and see them grow.”
Therefore, we decided not to focus on the filter itself to solve the filters’ environmental problem. The idea is to add to the selling of pack a small metallic box. The smoker will be allow to put the end of the cigarette into it and thus not pollute the street.
Upgrade : The company can organize a collect of those small boxes. The consumer that will bring back the greater number will receive a gain (for example free pack). In that manner, Marlboro could combine environmental and marketing campaign.
