While a few years back we might all be trying to cut back on plastic straws, a more unexpected thing that has a huge (and positive) impact on the environment is cutting out smoking. The amount of paper needed to produce the world's whopping 5.7 trillion cigarettes a year is huge but the effect of a single cigarette butt in the natural environment is even more damaging. With all the chemicals held in the plastic filter, just one cigarette butt can contaminate up to 1000 litres of water. By switching to vaping, you’re already making a difference.
Everything we consume will have an impact on our environment but by taking small steps we can reduce that impact by reusing and recycling wherever possible. While vaping is never going to be totally waste free, it’s a much safer choice for our bodies and our planet. We’ll break down each part in your e-cigarette and let you know what, how (and where) you can recycle those parts.
