taketray – The ideal pocket ashtray!

Made in Switzerland.

Experience shows that pocket ashtrays are only used if they are also functional. That’s why we developed the taketray together with the University of Applied Sciences in Rapperswil and the target group: The first pocket ashtray that meets all functional requirements for practical use. In addition, it is manufactured in an environmentally friendly way from recycled material.

Your benefit: You achieve optimal acceptance among the target group, which means that the taketray is used regularly in everyday life. This puts a lasting stop to environmental pollution caused by cigarette littering.

The unsolved
littering Problem!

Previous anti-cigarette litter campaigns were ineffective!

Put a lasting stop to cigarette littering!

 taketray — campaign

The new, effective solution approach!

The problem is solved when smokers habitually use a portable ashtray!

As long as litters are more convenient and effectively free, only a minority of smokers are willing to buy a pocket ashtray. If you want to stop this environmental pollution, you have to give the target group a functional pocket ashtray.

  1. All smokers receive the most functional pocket ashtray
  2. Ensure use via promotion of motivation through…
  3.  …personal commitment.
  4. …accompanying campaign “Fairer Deal”.
  5. …Incentives for use.
  6. …consistent enforcement of littering laws.
  7. …extension of smoking bans.

taketray inspires
the users

  • the annoying search for an ashtray outside is a thing of the past
  • you finally have a functional solution in the car too
  • Users develop ambition and pride: «No more stub ends up on the floor!»
  • taketray users receive compliments = new positive experience for smokers! e.g. in garden pubs

Customer feedback: «I am thrilled with the taketray. He stays cool, despite the burning cigarette. It does not stink. It has room for several stumps.»

The advantage
for the general public

  • Sustainable promotion of environmental protection
  • Reduction of pollution of public spaces (parks, playgrounds…)
  • Reduction of high cleaning costs: already 1 filled taketray amortises its investment
  • The taketray provides localities with a constructive alternative to anti-litter laws, which cannot be implemented anyway, easier enforcement of the extension of smoking bans if necessary
  • taketray is the most cost-effective solution to the cigarette litter problem
