material_play - A GREAT IDEA FOR CIGARETTE BUTTS
What a cool way to counter waste and turn it into something useful! In this case cigarette butts are integrated into clay bricks, reducing the energy it takes to make them! At the same time the acoustic qualities are improved and they are lighter in weight than ordinary bricks! This technique will help to reduce pollution and improve the overall litter problem. How awesome is that?! Source:
