The filters in cigarettes are made of tiny plastic particles that take decades or more to decompose. And they serve no use. According to a World Health Organization (WHO) report, cigarette filters were created in the 1950s by the tobacco industry in an effort to make smoking a “healthier” alternative to unfiltered cigarettes.

A San Diego startup called, Greenbutts is developing a filter made of organic material, like hemp and wood pulp, that quickly breaks down in soil or water. According to NBC, the company says its product is ready for market and can be delivered for a reasonable price if it’s mass produced.
