We live in an environmentally conscientious world. It’s no surprise, then, that so many people have questions about the impact of vaping on the planet. After all, smoking tobacco can do a lot of damage to Mother Earth - so, is vaping any better? Turns out that vaping is a whole lot better for the environment. See for yourself why vaping is not only better for YOUR health, but also the health of the planet.
One of the biggest sources of waste from traditional cigarettes is the synthetic fiber filters that end up tossed on the sidewalk, into the street, and anywhere else a smoker can find to dispose of them. Even when cigarette butts are disposed of properly, the waste builds up in landfills, and the toxins in the butts can leach into the soil. This is significant because an estimated 1.69 billion pounds of cigarette butts are tossed each year. Because vaping means no synthetic fiber filters, you can rest assured that you are reducing the amount of waste that is being accumulated on the planet while enjoying your lifestyle.
No Second-Hand Smoke
Your non-smoking friends and family appreciate the fact that vaping doesn’t produce second-hand smoke, but the environment appreciates it, too. Vaping produces 1/20th the amount of toxins as a traditional cigarette - or less. This is because vaping liquid nicotine does not contain all of the unnatural and harmful additives that cigarettes do.
Smoking a traditional cigarette requires the use of a disposable lighter. These lighters use up a lot of natural resources and are very wasteful as they need to be replaced regularly and can’t be recycled ( at least most of them can’t). Vaping requires only the use of an ion battery. Not only do these batteries have a very long operational life, but they can also be recharged and reused for a very long time. This significantly cuts down on waste and is better for the environment.
Tree Hugger Friendly
If you’re a friend of the trees, vaping is the way to go. An estimated 600 million trees are cut down each year to produce cigarettes - and those cigarettes cannot be recycled. With vaping, you can keep the trees intact. Vape pens and juice containers are all recyclable which means that you can live your best “waste not, want not” life.
Spend Time Outdoors
There’s no point in being environmentally friendly if you aren’t able to spend any time in the great outdoors. Unfortunately, many smokers find that they are unable to enjoy a number of activities outside because smoking is not allowed in many environments. Because the vaping doesn’t produce the same harmful byproducts and carcinogens that traditional cigarettes do, however, most places are much more accommodating to those who wish to spend time being active outside while vaping it up. In fact, we offer a wide range of awesome apparel and outdoor lifestyle products that make it easy for you to have fun outdoors, live an active lifestyle, and vape with your friends - even inconspicuously. The more time that you are able to spend becoming one with nature, the more inspired you will be to do your part to protect our precious environment.
Vaping and the environment go hand in hand. This is one reason why we’ve developed an integrated vaping technology for use in many of our clothing items and other products.
