what they don't want you to know...

For almost a century Big Tobacco fooled smokers into believing that cigarette filters were made out of cork or cotton.

We now know that cigarette filters are made out of plastic.

As the world’s most littered item, it is crazy that the act of littering them remains socially acceptable.

Once tossed onto our streets – these pervasive little things get washed down drains as run-off when it rains. Traveling through water-systems, into rivers, and eventually into our oceans… it’s a problem at horrific scale.

Over time, the sun’s UV rays break up a cigarette butt into tiny pieces of plastic (micro-plastic).

As a result: cigarette butts are estimated to be the biggest contributor to micro-plastic pollution in our oceans. 

Yes – even worse than straws and plastic bags!

A healthy marine eco-system is perhaps our best weapon against climate change. This should make plastic cigarettes – and the companies who make them – enemy number one.

our story

In 2015, while taking a smoke break on our university campus in Cape Town, we noticed just how many cigarette butts littered the ground. This made us wonder, “What the hell are these things even made out of?”.  

The Google searches that shortly followed changed our lives forever. Cigarette filters made of plastic? Yes. Dodgy packaging? Yes. Tobacco sprayed with who-knows-what? Yes. Whenever Big Tobacco were asked why their products were so shit for the environment – they just blamed customers for “improper disposal”. …Classic.

We saw a need for an eco-alternative. Despite lacking a factory, we got creative, making ‘rollies’ in a humble garden shed with biodegradable filters and organic tobacco.

We cheekily dubbed them ‘Smokey Treats’ – a bit of a piss-take on the pompous sounding names Big Tobacco companies call themselves.

Our debut? The vibrant Cape Town music festivals. The reception? People loved it.  

To offer a solution to the world’s biggest plastic litter problem, however, we needed to make real cigarettes biodegradable cigarettes – and really good ones. We needed to create a cigarette that could compete with the likes of Marlboro (and Natural Plastic American Spirit) head on.


Thus, after much hard work and a lot of smoking, Woodland Craft Cigarettes was born – the first genuinely environmentally conscious cigarette.

With a community of passionate, eco-conscious smokers, Woodlands soared as South Africa’s fastest-growing premium cigarette brand, replacing millions of plastic filters.  

But, life threw a curveball: Covid-19. The government temporarily banned cigarette sales. Although this nearly broke us, causing a halt at the end of 2021, we’ve risen again.

Smokey Treats is now proud to present the new – and very much improved – Woodland Craft Cigarettes to retailers in South Africa and Germany, with more markets joining soon.

Our vision doesn’t stop at cigarettes. We’re aiming for plastic-free solutions across all smoking-related products. Thank you for being part of this transformative journey.

The Original "Smokey Treats" which are eco conscious hand rolled cigarettes, sold in a small envelope that had been hand stamped. They have biodegradable filters, unbleached cigarette paper and organic tobacco. It is an eco conscious cigarette product, but still bad for one's health. The idea is to present the eco conscious, sustainable, environmental, compostable, natural, and the eco aspects of the product. Die Original "Smokey Treats", umweltbewusste, handgerollte Zigaretten, verkauft in einem kleinen Umschlag, der von Hand gestempelt wurde. Sie haben biologisch abbaubare Filter, ungebleichtes Zigarettenpapier und organischen Tabak. Es handelt sich um ein umweltbewusstes Zigarettenprodukt, das jedoch immer noch schädlich für die Gesundheit ist. Die Idee ist, die umweltbewussten, nachhaltigen, umweltfreundlichen, kompostierbaren, natürlichen und ökologischen Aspekte des Produkts zu präsentieren.
