  1. I saw your article on cigarettes and cigarette butts. Most of the butts I see are along roadsides. I know many smokers who don’t like to litter their cars, but find the open window a way to make the problem simply ‘disappear’.
    If you want a product the drivers might use, perhaps a disposable cup shaped plastic container with perhaps a trap door. That would fit one of the many cup holders now built into most cars. I don’t smoke so I can’t make real suggestions about the design. I do have one friend with the standard habit of tossing her butts as if they would simply vanish. After starting my yard on fire I gave her a small bottle (teflon no less) for her waste. She never used it.
