Falls Creek Resort's Mini-Butt Personal AshtrayFalls Creek Ski Resort will be distributing No BuTTs 'Mini-Butts' Personal Ashtrays again during this years ski season which officially kicks off on the Queens Birthday weekend.

One of Australia's premier ski resorts, and located in Victoria's Alps, Falls Creek has been running their No BuTTs Butt Litter Reduction Campaigns for the last four years with outstanding results.

"Falls Creek is one of Australia's best ski resorts and it's great to see them setting such a high standard of eco-friendly behaviour." said No BuTTs Managing Director, Jack Jacobson. "It's a sad but common event for ski resorts around the world that as their season ends and the snow begins to melt, all those butts littered during their ski season begin to emerge from the ice and snow - and it looks disgusting."

Cigarette Butt Litter affects everyone
"Additionally, once they're exposed, those butts are far more likely to end up in the stomachs of birds and wildlife that have mistaken them for food and that's a big problem."

"We know that distributing Personal Ashtrays has resulted in a significant reduction of cigarete butt litter around Falls Creek." said Ben Derrick, Environmental Services Manager at Falls Creek. 

"You can see the difference and in fact these days, it's pretty rare to even see discarded cigarette butts because giving people a personal ashtray means that they can always do the right thing with their butts - wherever they are and wherever they smoke."

"Distributing Personal Ashtrays eliminates any excuses from smokers about littering their butts.  It's that simple.  It's also great to see how well smokers respond to receiving a free Personal Ashtray.  Most smokers do like to do the right thing and Mini-Butts give them the ability to do just that."

"It's also important to utlise fixed ashtray infrastructure so we have No BuTTs Eco-Pole Freestanding Bollard Ashtrays and Eco-Pole Wall/Post Mounted Ashtrays installed at various locations such a entrances to buildings etc."

The only kind of butt you'll see at Falls Creek!
"We have 1,000s of visitors and staff everyday all over our resort and wherever they are when they light up they also have a Personal Ashtray.  Even better is that from the time they receive their Mini-Butts they can do the right thing with their butts from that point on."

"Logo printing our Personal Ashtrays also helps advertise Falls Creek and our high standards of environmental responsibility and turns our Personal Ashtrays into a handy little eco-friendly souvenir that will be seen, used and appreciated long after they've left our resort."

"Falls Creek is open all year round so the other issue which is close to our hearts is the issue of fires started by discarded cigarette butts which could be catastrophic in the summer months.  Our Personal Ashtrays eliminate this problem too."

"Another benefit of distributing Personal Ashtrays is that our resort staff have much better things to do than to have to pick up discarded butts one by one.  No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays have basically solved the problem of cigarette butt litter at Falls Creek and that's why we will continue to use them."
