Designer Mandana Dilmaghani is attempting to make disposing cigarette butts fashionable with the Clean City Lab. The Clean City Lab is a necklace that also doubles as an ashtray.

Clean City Lab was designed by Dilmaghani and JTI and Future Concept Lab and was inspired by the Neuer Zollhof building in Düsseldorf, Germany. The ashtray is silver and has slots for up to five cigarette butts. The Clean City Lab has a lid so that the smoke from the butts doesn't float up and out. There are not many good places to disposes of cigarette butts when you're out and about; chucking them in the trash is dangerous and leaving them on the sidewalk is irresponsible and rude. A fashionable and portable ashtray could be a great way to quickly clean up a city. Stats for Fashionable Ashtrays Trending: Older & Chilly
