We are the leaders in cigarette waste reduction and disposal, and the exclusive distributors of The Pocket Ashtray in North America.

Check out our new promo video! Huge thank you’s to Daniel J Pierce of Ramshackle Pictures, The Funk Hunters for letting us use their song, and Simon Haiduk for providing the art for our first Wildfire Prevention and Education Pocket Ashtray. Shot on location at Diversity Festival distributing Bass Coast Festival Pocket Ashtrays.

Collect your cigarette waste (tobacco pouches, outer cellophane wrap, inner pack foil, & of course butts & tobacco) at home, at work, and at events.  You can even organize street cleanups and get your friends to collect their cigarette waste too!

All cigarette waste 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.

“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.”
