Development of a personal container to store cigarette butts, preventing them from ending up on the ground and their chemicals in the water.
Who has carried out the project?
Sonia and Jose Manuel.
What is the project about?
In the scale development of a portable personal container that allows storing up to 25 butts that can later be emptied at any point that allows proper treatment.
What is the purpose of this project?
Reduce the huge problem of millions of cigarette butts thrown on the ground daily. Studies show that each cigarette butt contaminates about 50 liters of water.
How does the project work? (Technologies used, user experience, etc.)
What we now have is a functional prototype made in 3D, we have tested the prototype with dozens of people and the evaluation is maximum.
What does this project contribute to the Maker Community?
The reality that through technologies such as 3D printing, prototypes can be built that solve enormous problems. Our dream is to be able to manufacture this product in Galicia, which already has a utility model. Its customization possibilities make it a project with great potential.
