In an attempt to curb pollution and waste management, Taylor Lane won a recycling contest with a surfboard covered with 10,000 cigarette butts. An industrial designer, who hails from California, Lane collected all the cigarette butts and glued the top and bottom layer of butts to the surfboard. However, it is not made of just cigarette butts, but also the waste that gets thrown in water bodies and beaches.

All the contestants were given three months to create their surfboards. Lane, 24, from Santa Cruz, had the top entry amid an assortment of boards made from potato sacks, used packaging and stuff picked up from Dumpster dives. The entries were for the third annual ‘Creators & Innovators Upcycle Contest’.
