Zéro Mégot, an initiaitve that upcycles cigarette butts into street furniture

Fighting against butts thrown to the ground!

Cigarette butts are the waste which is the most commonly thrown to the ground in the world(8 millions/second!). It is made of plastic and thousand of toxic components, which make it a disaster for ecosystems. A single butt will take about 15 years to degrade and disappear into nature, and can pollute up to 500L of water. It is clearly time to do something about that! In Luxemburg, the company Shime offers a solution to solve this issue, thanks to the project “Zéro Mégot”.
