Fireproof Lining, Gum Papers, Reusable and Pocket Sized
The Gum & Smokes combination pouch is a reusable anti litter device to help with the problem of chewing gum and cigarette butts.
It contains both Gum & Smokes fireproof papers for wrapping chewing gum and a fireproof lining to extinguish cigarettes and lock in odour.
The pouch is pocket sized and it enables gum and cigarette butts to be stored until they can be dropped into a bin rather than dropped in the street.
It helps us all to take responsibility for litter and our environment.
Golf Courses & Public Authorities
The Gum & Smokes pouch was piloted in 2004 on golf courses and following the introduction of the smoking ban in public places in Ireland it was supported by the Dublin Tourist Board.
A gum and cigarette pouch was adopted by the Greater London Authority as part of Mayor Ken Livingstone's Capital Standards clean streets campaign.
Gum & Smokes pouch contains gum papers that are used to wrap and store gum.
The fireproof papers mean that the pouch is in fact a pocket ashtray and can be used to store both cigarette butts and chewing gum until they can be safely disposed of in a bin.
Anti Litter Campaigns
As anti litter fines are becoming more common, local authorities in the UK and Ireland have taken up such pouches in a variety of ways.
Some hand them out instead of fines for a first offense, others sell them or hand them out in the street.
|Cliffs of Mohar use these customised pouches to reduce litter and cigarette waste left on the property.
Customised display packaging is also available
