Every year billions of disposable plastic lighters and other components end up on the trash and, apart from plastic shoes and bags, contribute significantly to environmental pollution.

We demand an immediate ban on the production of such products!


It is a well-known fact that plastic waste threatens our oceans, our entire environment! Why not take hold of the problem and not let it grow any further by generally banning such single-use products from the market? Action is required now at the latest!



Thank you for your support, Daniel Hinnerkopf from Litschau
