Toowoomba Pipeline Alliance's Personal Ashtrays eliminating employee cigarette butt litterToowoomba Pipeline Alliance is the latest construction project to begin eliminating their cigarette butt litter
by distributing No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays to their employees and contractors. 

"It's really important for us to ensure that all our employees and contractors do the right thing with their butts where ever they are.  Butt litter is not only bad for the environment, it's extremely damaging to the corporate image and public profile of our organisation when our people litter their butts in public.  People do notice." said Community Liason Officer Carmen Marshall.

"That's why we've ordered logo printed Personal Ashtrays from No BuTTs and are now distributing them to staff.  Our Personal Ashtrays eliminate the problem because no matter where our people are, they've got their own portable ashtray to properly dispose of their cigarette butts."

"We're also very happy with the response from our staff and contractors - and also the public.  Everyone thinks our Personal Ashtrays are a great idea and they also display TPA's high standards of environmental responsibility and concern for our community."

"We did look at other Personal Ashtrays but No BuTTs "Mini-Butts" Personal Ashtrays stood out in terms of design, durability, ease of use - and most importantly, butt storage capacity - which is almost double that of the other units - even though in most cases, the No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays were actually smaller than the alternatives."

"Butt storage is crucial to the success of our butt litter reduction program as our employees and contractors can be out in the field all day.  No BuTTs Personal Ashtrays hold around 13 butts which is far superior than the others, most of which could only hold around 6-7 butts - and that's simply not enough."

"Additionally, we were also very impressed with No BuTTs posters, campaign suggestions and backup service which has really encouraged our staff and contractors to get behind our efforts to eliminate cigarette butt litter."
