Everyone know that the smoking ban will be extended to England from 1st July, but not everyone is aware of the fines being dished out for dropping cigarette butts on the floor when you are out and about – £80 a time.
So, to save you some cash, give up smoking. Or if you can’t manage that, invest in the Ashcan. It’s a portable ashtray that puts out your cigarette and keeps the smell inside, thanks to the airtight nature of the container. And when it’s full, empty it in a bin.
Yes, the chances of getting caught and fined are probably slim. But if you care about the state of the streets, it’s worth considering. The Ashcan is available from Tesco from June for just £1.20.
