Smokers have always gotten a bad rap for contributing to the polluted state of the world. Now French collective Mademoiselle Jean-Claude have emerged with a new invention in the defense of our smoker friends: an eco-friendly ashtray that doubles up as a potted plant pot. Basically you can dispose of your cig butts here, and leave it to the device to filter out ashes from the cig butts as fertilizer for the resident plant. So it now seems smokers get to smoke and benefit their plant friends in a symbiotic way with this special ashtray. No reason to quit smoking, then.
