These 100% biodegradable cigarette filters, called Greenbutts, deteriorate in one month rather than the typical 15 years. They are made from a natural blend of materials, including flax, hemp and cotton.

The company even designed a version with seeds inside, which sprout flowers when planted in soil, making for a very next natural way of gardening. Will this eco-friendly filter help the environment or just encourage littering? We’ll discover it soon: Greenbutts will be on sale in early 2014.
