Who would have thought that cigarette butts would be put to good use? With many smokers in the world despite a call to quit smoking, cigarette butts can be useful after all. Thanks to the ingenious mind of fashion designer Alexandra Guerrero, cigarette butts turned into fashionable clothing has become a success and a new idea towards the drive for eco-friendly ideas.
After seeing the positive results and large interest generated, Alexandra decided to turn the project into a business. After purifying the butts (she collects them from the streets), the material is combined with wool to form a raw, textured wool, which can be knit into a variety of garments.
Prices range from $50 for a beret, $125 for the adorable sweater and, our favorite, $110 for the dress.
