A few undergrads came together for this year's 'World No Tobacco Day' and made a sports car using 10,000 discarded cigarette cartons.

The car is an eco-friendly vehicle that surprisingly, actually runs. Weighing 300 kg, the size of the car is same as that of a real standard sedan. It took eight months for the team to form the car's shape and over 2,500 students helped in gathering the 10,000 cigarette cartons. Definitely a creative way to reveal the immense number of cigarettes people go through on 'World No Tobacco Day'.
