UK designer Ben Forman has come with a brilliant idea of turning the act of littering into something that would add to the beauty of outdoor spaces. Forman’s ‘Cigg Seeds’ are biodegradable cigarette filters that are embedded with wild flower seeds. Whenever a butt is thrown on to the ground, they will flourish into beautiful flowers. Even though this solution might not be fully practical in urban areas, it certainly would be very beneficial for public parks, beaches and other green zones.

But it encourages smoking, so it's like a positive but still a negative.

I kinda see it like "If you're so dead set on wrecking yourself. Why not help the environment effortlessly as you do it?"

This only encourage smokers to throw their used cigar everywhere and call it saving environment

I can see it now! "I gots me these green cigs, I just throw it into that plant-like area and... oh shit's on fire."

pic not related, I had a good picture in mind, but I couldn't find it.

But... but...
Not all plants will grow in all places. And what if you introduce this plant into an ecosystem which doesn't have a place for it? I mean not only are you 1) polluting the air by smoking the rest of the cigarette and 2) throwing your butts literally anywhere (which despite the biodegradablilty, still looks trashy for a long time), but now you're also introducing a potentially invasive species.

User avatar #33 to #30 - BlueToaster (07/09/2013) [-]
The seeds are in the filter. You don't burn the filter.

Maybe someone should come up with the idea of getting rid of all the deadly shit in cigarettes... We can grow a human liver, but we can't make tobacco stop killing people...

There are electronic cigarettes.

and... wait any cops around... okay, marijuana, just don't inject more than 2 marijuana at a time, or the cancer bacteria will turn you into a terrorist. The government said so.

User avatar #17 to #14 - newbiedoobiedoo (07/09/2013) [-]
The weed would probably grow into shitweed and there's no telling which seed is male or female until a couple weeks in. Only female plants grow bud. It would be damn near worthless and extremely illegal

"burden your lungs, not the environment." should be the slogan for that cigarette.
