Yorkshire firm Decopots has come up with a classy and elegant solution to the problems posed by the smoking ban - namely unsightly cigarette butts scattered outside hotels and restaurants and accompanying demands from the council for money to clean them up.
Its SaddleBag Ashtray planters are pedestal ashtrays that combine ashtrays with tall plant containers.
The flexible planters allow between one and four ashtrays to be locked into place around the lip of the container, which can also double up as a drinks platform for guests.
The planters are available on castors and come in a wide range of colours, with the option of adding company logos or messages.
