Tobacco cigarettes are perhaps, one of the most un-green habits one could pick up. On so many levels they contradict every possible natural, clean, and pure way to live. For each individual body, and the entire earth as a whole, cigarettes have contributed nothing positive. Thankfully, because of our ever evolving, ever expanding ability to utilize technology, e-cigarettes have begun to make a very dramatic presence, and are successfully replacing tobacco. Here is a little insight regarding how vapor cigarettes are taking nicotine to the next level.
Cigarettes are made with so many chemicals, and are proven to cause cancer, and other deadly illnesses. These chemicals that get mixed into the filters remain long after the cigarette has been smoked, and the most common place a butt ends up is on the ground. The enormity of pollution caused by cigarettes is staggering, and extremely widespread. On the ground, they contaminate soil and water, when they reach bodies of water, not only do they pollute them with their chemicals, they become a serious hazard to wildlife who often ingest them.
Then there is the issue of smoke, which reeks havoc on a variety of levels, starting with the individual who smokes the cigarette. The second hand smoke it produces is a danger to those in close proximity, and eventually that smoke contributes to air pollution. Have you ever been inside of a building with very little ventilation, where smoking was permitted? Do you recall how unnervingly repulsive it was? Do you recall not being able to see clearly, because it created such a haze? How the smell, awful, right? Fortunately, smoking is generally not permitted in doors in many public places, and for these very reasons.
Think about it; anything that affects a high quality of living is not “green.” Smoke and tobacco will kill you, make you sick, cost a fortune, make you smell bad, and inconvenience you over and over till you can’t take it anymore! Electronic cigarettes are the future, and the eco friendly way to indulge in nicotine pleasures because they add luxury to the experience. They remove all the negatives, and allow only positives. No pollution, no health consequences, no bad odors… Don’t you just want an e-cig starter kit right about now?
