Brain Garden started as a grassroots endeavor & grew into a global movement, becoming a leader in tobacco waste product reduction strategies & disposal, & the premier distributor of custom branded Reusable Pocket Ashtrays in the world. 

You can find our Pocket Ashtrays all over on the planet, & if you can’t find a red pin near you on the map below, let us know & let’s make magic happen!

Check out our mini doc made by Daniel J Pierce of Ramshackle Pictures. Shot on location at Diversity Festival distributing Bass Coast Festival Pocket Ashtrays to a BUTT load of awesome humans.

Brain Garden Pocket Ashtrays prevent wildfire, protect ecosystems, & are made of recycled materials.  Our reusable Pocket Ashtrays utilize an airtight seal that suffocates smokables while locking in odour & contents. Smokers can simply drop in their lit butt & snap shut.

Cigarette butts are made of a non-biodegradable plastic called cellulose acetate & are literally toxic waste. They leach chemicals into our environment, waste millions of taxpayer dollars in litter cleanup & wildfire suppression, & are often mistaken for food by small children & animals.

“Jack and Sarah volunteered with my Green River Collective crew and worked tirelessly handing out pocket ashtrays and setting up a cigarette butt recycling program spreading a new consciousness to the festival. As a result we have a cleaner festival, a healthier river ecosystem and we spend far less hours picking up cigarette butts. To any community faced with a cigarette litter problem I would recommend the approach of handing out pocket ashtrays to smokers with the message of making positive choices for a cleaner, healthier environment”

“The City of North Vancouver has been very pleased with the success of the Pocket Ashtrays. The feedback we have received from residents and users of the product has been amazing. The product is very light weight for people to carry, easy to dispose of the content, and no smell.”
