Muni on this:

What if we can create a new culture of awareness through creative endeavors we love doing anyway?

Join Muni’s #CutTheCrap gig on June 15!
The gig will round up our #CutTheCrap #NoMoreButts campaign to raise awareness on the impact of cigarette butts on the environment.

#CutTheCrap #NoMoreButts: An Eyegasmic Campaign
We’ve started the campaign by first circulating e-posters by illustrators Rob Cham, Manix Abrera, Celina de Guzman, Reg Silva, OJ Desuasido and JP Cuison via our Facebook page.

Then, we’re proposing the use of film canisters (some of which were funkified by our partner artists, no less) as temporary storage for used cigarette filters in times when trash bins are not immediately accessible.

Why film canisters? No added fuel / energy is needed because these are something we simply upcycle (there’s lots of it lying around in people’s drawers, waiting for reuse). They’re also small enough to easily fit in your bag / pocket, and can fit a fair number of cigarette butts for personal consumption.

Dominating All The Senses
After the eye-gasm through our e-posters and film canisters, we’ll be distributing the canisters at our #CutTheCrap gig on June 15 at Route 196 and complete the multi-sensory campaign with music from Pedicab, Ciudad, Your Imaginary Friends, Slow Hello, No Rome and RomCom! 😀

Check out this draft video by Red House Productions shot at co.lab featuring our illustrator and musician collaborators talking about Muni and the #CutTheCrap campaign, and inviting you to the #CutTheCrap gig! 🙂
