Well e-cigarettes are not typically considered a typical eco-friendly item, there are many benefits to using them that go easy on the environment. Especially when compared to traditional cigarettes, if you’re going to make a choice based on personal responsibility and the desire to opt for the smoking method with the least impact, vaping is the way to go.
As a smoker one of the best things you can do to do your part in making wiser choices is to stop using tobacco and switch to e-cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are better for the environment, and a fantastic alternative because they are reusable, they don’t contain tobacco, they do not produce a fraction of the trash that traditional cigarettes produce, and they do not pose same threat as being so easily littered like traditional cigarettes.
Tobacco cigarettes pollute a massive amount throughout the world, ending up in rivers, lakes, streams, as well as plenty of other wildlife habitats. They are considered the most polluted items in the world and unfortunately the pollution does not end when the cigarette is strewn on the floor after a smoker is finished with the butt. Cigarette butts do not decompose efficiently, and as they slowly break down, they begin to release all of their toxic compounds, polluting on a smaller, yet still toxic, scale. They constantly end up in the digestive systems of wild animals, and contribute to countless deaths in the natural world.
While e-cigarettes do contain some disposable components, such as cartridges, these are used and changed less frequently, they are harder to ignorantly toss on the ground, and just for perspective, one e-cigarette cartridge is equal to about 20 traditional cigarettes.
Being more eco-conscious is about making wise decisions and improving your daily choices. And with all of the other other many benefits of electronic smoking compared to the countless negatives of traditional smoking, being able to use the method that offers similar experience with so many more benefits as well as being better for the environment makes vaping the smart way to smoke.
