Dedicated To 
Solving The Global
Problem 
Of Cigarette
Butt Pollution

Greenbutts™ is on a MISSION to ELIMINATE the significant environmental impact caused by CIGARETTE BUTTS - over 65% are littered each year making it the most littered PLASTIC in the world. 

 

Since 2010, Greenbutts™ has worked with leading R&D institutions,

international tobacco companies and industry experts to produce our patented biodegradable filter technology

THE Greenbutts™ FILTER
SUSTAINABLE

Plant based Greenbutts™ filters are made of a proprietary and patented blend of all-natural, food-grade fibers utilizing a starch-based binder. A sustainable alternative to synthesized cellulose acetate.  

Greenbutts™ filters substrate was specifically designed to work on existing filter-making machinery to facilitate a seamless transition for the cigarette industry to move away from acetate filter production.

FULLY COMPATIBLE

Greenbutts™, filters are made without using synthetic materials or plasticizers, making them the go-to alternative for the cigarette industry to comply with ever-increasing Single-Use Plastics Directive (SUPD) requirements and regulations.
