An Unconsidered Benefit of Vaping
Posted 29th Aug 2014 to Vaping Style and Culture
I’ve been vaping for a long time now and I’ve become an advanced vaper. I’m definitely a veteran in many circles and understand the ins and outs of vaping. I know the benefits and the safeties one must use to use their personal vaporiser safely and without harm. I’m a bit embarrassed to say one beneficial aspect of vaping never occurred to me until recently when I was out at the bar with some friends. This aspect really has been ignored as it isn’t as beneficial to the individual as it is to the environment. No, it’s not what you think it is! You’re probably thinking it’s the fact e-cigs do not make smoke that is polluting the air. Very close. But the aspect that I’m talking about is actually littering.
I was thinking that if all snokers used e-cigarettes; instead, not only would the air quality improve greatly with the sweet delicious smell of vapour, but the floors would be so much cleaner as well
When I was out at the local bar, last weekend I was among a lot of smokers as my area hasn’t accepted vaping as much as most larger populated (and forward thinking) areas in the United States. May people still smoke where I am, but they know what an E-Cig is but the lack of a local vape stores has most people uneducated and continue to smoke. Anyways as most smokers do, after finishing their cigarettes they tend to throw their butts anywhere that’s convenient for them. At the bar where I was at, the floor was littered with hundreds of butts that evening. I was shocked I never noticed it before, but the littering was abysmal. Holding my personal vaporizer, I was thinking that if all snokers used e-cigarettes; instead, not only would the air quality improve greatly with the sweet delicious smell of vapour, but the floors would be so much cleaner as well. There wouldn’t be a need for someone to clean up the mess every night if everyone picked up an e-cig. I’ve heard of many arguments in my day, but never has anyone bothered to use this as a pro for ecig usage.
So next time you’re talking about ecigarettes and how they are a healthier alternative to smoking, definitely mention the environment in your argument. Sure your lung capacity would be better, your teeth whiter, and you’d live longer. But e-cigs are also better for the environment as well! Especially when you consider over a billion pounds (not an understatement) of cigarette butts are littered every single year, ecigarette usage by everyone would be an immense help to the planet Earth.
