Are there any companies that make biodegradable cigarette butts?

    If you roll your own cigarettes, the butt simply consists of paper and tobacco, both of which are biodegradable. There is also a british company called Stanelco that makes the cigarettes from starches that decompose in 2 months.

    There has actually been a move to make biodegradable cigarette filters. The biodegradable filters are better for the environment and supposedly are better for consumers as well. Instead of plastic, as the old filters were made, the new type of filter is made of a starch. The cigarette manufacturer Stanelco is using biodegradable cigarette filters now.
