Collect butts at home, in your community, and at events then Click Here for a Brain Garden shipping label compliments of our friends at Terracycle.

All cigarette butts recycled in this way will raise money for our Wildfire Prevention & Education Campaign.

Made of recycled PVC material, our Flagship Product – The Pocket Ashtray utilizes an innovative air seal that suffocates burning matter while locking odour in, leaving no excuse to litter cigarette butts.

“Over the course of 2 years we saw a notable reduction in cigarette butt litter. As much as 80% less cigarette litter on the grounds and on the river. Once the word got out to use the pocket ashtrays and to respect the river and the land a change began to take place. 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 braingarden.ca 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.”

“Thank you VERY much for producing and sending us the pocket ashtrays earlier this year. I cannot overstate the major positive impact having these pocket ashtrays has made on Surfrider’s ability to connect with and improve the cigarette butt litter here in Southern California.”
