As the world is becoming more environmentally aware, vaping is now considered eco-friendly. Vaping means no more dealing with cigarette butts and supporting the tobacco industry.
Smoking cigarettes affects almost every organ of the body, induces many diseases, and in general, decreases smokers’ health. Aside from its reputation of causing numerous health problems, cigarette butts comprise 38% of litter collected in the US.
Moreover, tobacco facilities release more than a million pounds of toxic chemicals to the environment, and tobacco cultivation is known to be a significant contributor to deforestation. On top of this, secondhand smoke contributes to air pollution, and cigarette butts also pollute waterways and oceans. The Ocean Conservancy states that cigarette butts compose the most trash collected in ocean cleanups.
As a responsible citizen and vaper, here are some tips you can do to help:
Turn Off Your Vape When You’re Not Using It
Merely turning the battery off when your device is not in use can save you from injury and harm. Aside from helping prolong the lifespan of your battery, it could be a hazard if the button is pushed accidentally, which can happen if your vape is in your pocket or bag. If unnoticed, the continuous heating of the atomizer might start a fire.
Opt for a Higher Battery Quality Vape Product
Most batteries in e-cigarettes contain heavy metals that need extensive treatment to remove all its residual metals. For instance, with Bidi Vapor, batteries have carefully thought of how we can improve the recyclability of e-cigarettes batteries. The battery used in every BIDI® Stick contains a high-quality battery that has been certified by FCC, CE, and ROHS. It is an investment in making BIDI® Stick a high quality and eco-conscious product.
Buy Vapes with a Medical-Rate Pad
Most vape pens have the usual synthetic cotton. BIDI® has a medical-rate pad that is highly recyclable – a win for the environment!
You Can Recycle in Vaping
For non-disposable vapes, some advanced tanks and mods are reusable—a mod with Variable Wattage mode can be compatible with a range of tanks, so you don’t have to buy a new one. Some vapers may also have a range of old vape hardware that they can share with users who need it.
Proper disposal of batteries is essential since they are toxic and must not be with other trash. Moreover, pressure and heat may also cause lithium-ion batteries to produce sparks, which causes them to be one of the main culprits of recycling truck fires.
When you purchase disposable vapes, make sure to recycle it by supporting vape companies that allow you to return your vape sticks and be replaced with new ones.
Choose a product that cares for you and the environment. Choose BIDI® Stick.
Bidi Vapor reminds its consumers of eco-friendly and sustainable vaping practices by launching a recycling program. The “Save a BIDI®. Save Our Environment” by BIDI® Cares aims to motivate its consumers to recycle their used BIDI® Sticks.
