Summit Forestry promotes a butt free and fire free Colorado with No BuTTs Pocket Ashtrays
Summit Forestry, based in Fort Collins Colorado is publicly distributing No BuTTs Pocket Ashtrays to assist in the promotion of a fire free Colorado.

One of Northern Colorado's leading Active Forest Management and Wildfire Prevention & Suppression companies, Summit Forestry was one of many local and interstate participants deployed in the recent battle to control the High Park Fire which burned over 87,234 acres and resulted in one fatality and over 259 homes destroyed.

"Although the recent High Park Fire was attributed to lightning, the fact is that forest fires are also often started by littered cigarette butts, and we want to do everything we can to help get the message out on fire prevention." said Tony Mahon, Owner of Summit Forestry.

"No BuTTs Pocket Ashtrays are a brilliant solution to cigarette butt litter - and that's good for smokers and our environment."

"Considering recent tragic events in Colorado and the fact that we're experiencing the worst wildfire season in the State's history, there's probably never been a more appropriate time to try to get the message out on just how dangerous cigarette butt littering is - and to simultaneously change the littering habits of smokers." said Tony.

"The High Park Fire was a disaster caused by an act of God, and all we could do was deal with it when it exploded, so if there is anything we can do to help reduce the risk of avoidable fires, then we're going to do it."

"Handing out Pocket Ashtrays is a great way to reinforce the message that littered butts can and do start fires and that
by carrying one of our Pocket Ashtrays, there's never any
reason for any smoker to ever flick their butts."

"When we take into account the fires we've recently experienced all over Colorado, including the High Park Fire which ravaged parts of our local community, there's even more relevance to the issue of cigarette butt litter reduction."

"We also appreciate the excellent eco-friendly advertising our Pocket Ashtrays provide for our business because this is one promotional product that is used, seen and appreciated many times a day by the user - and they're also a talking point."

"I've got a 100 promotional pens in my desk at the office that I've accumulated from various businesses but I couldn't even tell you the name of one of them." said Tony.

"Everyone who sees our Pocket Ashtrays for the first time is blown away by this simple and effective solution to butt litter and resulting risk of fires - and it's our business that gets the kudos."

"We're amazed and delighted at the positive comments we're hearing and I know for a fact that our Pocket Ashtrays have resulted in new business for our company."

The High Park Fire, which started June 9th is the second-largest and second-most destructive fire in Colorado history and was only declared 100% contained yesterday, 2nd July 2012.

All evacuations were lifted today at noon and all roads were reopened including Highway 14 in the Poudre Canyon, officials said, although stressing that some restrictions would continue to apply to certain areas.

"The fact is that some of our guys smoke, so they're all delighted that the days of stubbing out their butts, and then putting them in their pockets to bin later, are over."

"Ultimately, it would be better if people didn't smoke, so we push that message too with a quit smoking suggestion printed on our ashtrays."
