Paper ashtrays from now on on the beaches of Hvar

first_imgAccording to the concept of the Pag association Volim Vlašići and the project “Please do not throw cigarette butts, our fish and birds do not smoke”, the City of Hvar has set up biodegradable cardboard ashtrays to reduce the environmental and visual problem of leaving cigarette butts on beaches. Ashtrays can be disposable or reusable, they are made of paper (cardboard), they are biodegradable and they have assembly instructions on them. They are used in such a way that sand is put inside, and ashtrays are driven into the sand so that they can stand unhindered. After using the ashtray, it is taken out of the sand and the sand that is inside comes out through the holes in the ashtray.  The ashtrays are thrown into a nearby trash can. If you also want paper ashtrays in your destination and beaches, contact the Association I love Vlasic and join the project. Now this great project is spreading to the town of Hvar. center_img “We hope that other municipalities, cities, counties and tourist boards will follow their positive example”Point out from the Association Volim Vlašić. Cigarette butts are a big problem on beaches, both primarily environmentally and visually. Just as a solution to this problem, the Vlašići Association from the island of Pag last year set up free paper ashtrays on the beaches and solved this big problem in the simplest way.
