Cigarette butts are one of the worst things in the world. Smokers don't bother holding onto them until they find a bin, so they end up littering the streets, cluttering the space outside the entrance to your flat, and just generally being ugly and annoying.

Designer Ben Forman feels the same. Annoyed with the butts that litter the UK, he came up with a pretty good way to turn something negative into a positive. Called 'Cigg Seeds', the idea sees cigarettes with biodegradable filters that contain wild flower seeds.

In theory, these seeds would then sprout and blood when thrown onto the ground, turning littering into a way to add a bit more nature to our concrete cities. [via Design Taxi]
