Young Indian innovators Naman and Vishal are recycling cigarette butts into organic manure. Discarded cigarette butts are a major environmental hazard as they contaminate drinking water. In India, cigarette butts are discarded in homes, streets and public places. Butts are choking hazards for birds, pests and fishes. The Indian Medical Association says smokers discard 100 billion cigarette butts every year. Two entrepreneurs in India have come up with a way to turn the litter into good use. They are paying 11 dollars for every kilogram of cigarette buts.
