The history of Hubbub Enterprise 

It all started with an ashtray. Back in 2015, Hubbub Foundation trialled a series of interventions for award-winning campaign Neat Streets that aimed to tackle litter on Villiers Street, one of London’s most littered streets. 

One intervention tested the idea of a voting ashtray which asked punters who is the best footballer in the world: Ronaldo or Messi? (Ronaldo won the popular vote, but at least the streets were less Messi). It went viral and requests to buy the product flooded in. However, there was only one sample product at the time, so a reliable supplier was quickly found, and the iconic Ballot Bin was officially brought to market, marking the launch of Hubbub Enterprise.
