Cigarette Butt Clothing

Cigarette Butt Clothing 

You see them littered, in the grass, in your flowerpots, on the streets, in the sand at the playground, in the sand at the beach…. everywhere. They are an eyesore, toxic to the environment (start forest fires, small animals ingest them and die, chemicals leach into our water supply) and a daily reminder of how wasteful we can be with even the smallest of objects.

And what else are you gonna do with dead batteries? That’s exactly why I am jazzed about this Energy Seed concept by Sungwoo Park. You collect all the batteries that no longer power your digital cameras, baby toys and TV remotes, and you deposit them in the base of this lamp.
