What is Environmental Sustainability?

From theory to practice, Environmental Sustainability is the goal of Bidi Cares.

As technological advancements offer society greater convenience and ease, the downside is the potential environmental effects of modernization that may affect future generations.

Improper waste disposal and climate change are starting to show. Amidst the towering buildings and breathtaking innovations, pollution has become a normal occurrence. Seeing murky waters and inhaling unclean air around them are unfortunate side effects of modern life.

Moreover, as the weather becomes even more unpredictable, rising temperatures are slowly melting ice caps and causing droughts. 

The future is bleak for the planet if these problems persist. However, a concept that appeared first in 1987 is slowly gaining popularity and could become the answer to the environmental apathy that humanity has shown for decades: Environmental Sustainability.

What is Environmental Sustainability?

According to the University of Maryland, sustainability is “the ability to meet the needs of the current generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” It is an extensive and elaborate concept that encompasses the economy, the ecology, and human life and health.  

From a sustainability perspective, resources are to be viewed as limited and finite. Thus, it is crucial to keep in mind a long-term view of how we interact with nature and how we utilize our environment. It proposes that if we continue to abuse our resources for the present without finding ways to replenish or take care of them, the future generations–our children and grandchildren–will bear the harmful consequences.

Environmental sustainability dictates that even though we have to supply our own needs, we also have to ensure that the environment is not compromised and that our resources are replaced or are renewable. Clean air, clean water, and fertile land can be considered vital factors to ensure that the economy and society can flourish. However, these are all dependent on the current actions we take and the choices we make.

Unfortunately, our demands do not support sustainability.

The garbage volume and pollution problem, the rising temperatures, and the growing number of extinct species are not good indicators of a promising future. All these are consequences brought about by human disregard and selfishness driven by personal convenience.

If we want our race to survive, the “living in the present” mindset needs to be replaced for good.

Bidi Vapor: Supporting a Sustainable Mindset

Many companies mass-produce their product to reach a broader market. The waste production arising from the manufacture of these goods or products will have an impact on the environment.

One of the things we can do on a personal level is to support companies that adopt a sustainable mindset. These organizations create products with the environment in mind and ensure that they find ways to reduce waste.

Bidi™ Vapor is a company that strives for sustainability. Knowing that their vape product, Bidi™ Stick is non-biodegradable, the company created the Bidi™ Cares Program.l.

Ten used Bidi Sticks in exchange for a FREE one.  

This incentive is a “thank you gift” that Bidi Vapor promises its users for demonstrating a more responsible vaping lifestyle. As Bidi Vapor heads toward the future, they join other stakeholders in providing a sustainable future for the coming generations.

Here are 5 Tips on How You Can Get Involved in World Environment Day

On June 5, we celebrate World Environment Day worldwide. You too can create a significant impact with simple efforts. Bidi cares for the environment and has gathered information on how you can help.

World Environment Day is a global platform that inspires positive change and has done so since the UN declared it an official day back in 1972. It is being celebrated yearly on June 5, engaging both governments, businesses, celebrities, and you to participate in the debate and efforts to help save our planet. 

A different country hosts each year, and this year it’s Colombia in partnership with Germany. The focus of this year’s World Environment Day is biodiversity because it’s time for nature. We have gathered a list of simple ways you can help get involved in this year’s celebration.

Educate yourself

This year the focus is on biodiversity, or biological diversity, which is a term describing the variety of every living thing, including plants, bacteria, animals, and humans. The reason for this year’s focus is because around one million plants and animal species are risking becoming extinct, and we humans are one of the leading causes. 

All species have their role in our ecosystem to help keep it balanced and healthy. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it only underlines the importance of focusing on biodiversity as losses can increase the spread of diseases and viruses. To get involved, you can learn more about pressing issues on World Environment Day’s official website.

Use your Social Media Platforms

We all have a voice, and in times where almost everyone is on some social media platform, you can use yours for good without even leaving your couch. UNEP is sharing information on their social media that you can help share. 

Make sure you only share information from legitimate sources to avoid the spread of fake news. If you know any local organizations, you can tag them and encourage involvement as well

Involve in local projects.

Find out what your local government is doing to help save our planet and encourage them to make positive changes. There might also be projects you can get involved in from either the government or local organizations. If you have the resources, you can get your company, groups, institutions to partake in the World Environment Day. 

A global challenge you can join from your city is the Cities4Forests. They have created a competition for you to post an image of people with trees/forests where you can win cash.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

The biodiversity is dying because we humans do not take enough care of the environment. One of the simplest ways you can help is by reducing, reusing, and recycling what you have. In our everyday products and appliances, we have single-use plastic, single-use batteries, corrosive metals, to mention a few. 

When these end up in landfills and oceans, they cause severe harm to our biodiversity and also waste our finite natural resources. Since we can’t just ban all products in our life, it’s important to reuse what we can, and prioritize recyclability for those products we can’t reuse.

Save your Bidi, Save Our Planet.

At Bidi, we are aware of the potential dangers a vaping device can impose on the environment. We have worked diligently to ensure our Bidi™ Stick is recyclable. By using only high-quality components, we created a game-changer in the vaping industry. 

To further promote recycling, we launched the innovative Bidi Cares initiative to lead vaping into the future. You can make a difference and receive a reward simply by saving your used Bidi Sticks. 

We have already ensured they can be recycled, so all you have to do is return 10 used sticks, and then we reward your eco-conscious efforts by giving you a free Bidi Stick on your next purchase.

Environmental Problems Posed by Batteries

Batteries can cause a lot of environmental issues. The good news is that there are solutions in place now which can help reduce the problems caused by disposed of batteries.

Do you know how many batteries are thrown away by Americans each year?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans manage to get rid of 3 billion batteries each year. Yes, you read that right, that’s billion with a “b,” which translates to roughly 180,000 tons each year of used-up batteries. That’s like an entire mountain of piled up old batteries!

How can so much waste impact the environment?

This article looks into the effect of batteries in the environment and what we can do to lessen their effect.

The  Massive Impact

The sheer amount of the batteries being disposed of each year is a problem already, and the fact that these batteries contain highly toxic materials complicates it further. If not handled properly, they cause not only pollution but also serious contamination.

The problem with throwing away batteries and other waste materials is that they still have to go somewhere. They don’t just magically vanish. They end up in landfills, which no longer has enough space.

Then there is the fact that these batteries contain materials that can harm humans and the environment. What are some of the materials inside batteries that can be problematic? Here are a few:

  • Cadmium
  • Mercury
  • Lead
  • Lithium

These materials are highly toxic and can pose dangers to human health and the environment if they are not disposed of properly.

The impact of batteries on the environment is measurable using four indicators. Those indicators are:

  1. Natural resources consumption
  2. Climate change
  3. Air pollution
  4. Water pollution

It would help to check these indicators in depth.

Natural Resources Consumption

The manufacturing of batteries requires several materials, many of which are sourced from the mining industry. The extraction of these materials alone can already have some serious environmental effects. The ramping up of the production of batteries also means that the environment has to suffer more damage.

Even the more environmentally friendly method of extracting resources can still leave considerable damage to the environment in their wake.

Climate Change

The making of so many batteries can also have an impact on climate change and global warming. The factories that make modern batteries emit pollutants that contribute to the greenhouse effect, causing climate change and global warming. You may not feel the effects of global warming right now, but in other parts of the world, it is causing a major disruption in the lives of people.

Air Pollution

The manufacturing of batteries can make air pollution worse in the area where they are conducted. Air pollution is still a significant problem in some cities in developing and developed countries since it can cause serious diseases.

Water Pollution

Batteries contain toxins, which can be very harmful if they end up in the water system and bodies of water. Because of this, old batteries must be handled and disposed of properly to make sure they do not get to contaminate the water supply. Unfortunately, even properly disposed of batteries can still cause water pollution.

The Bidi™ Stick Battery

Most batteries in e-cigarettes contain heavy metals that need extensive treatment to remove all its residual metals. We did our research on how we can improve the recyclability and ensured every Bidi Stick contains a high-quality battery that has been certified by FCC, CE, and ROHS.

This is our way to promote the importance of recycling batteries for you and the environment. The battery used in a Bidi Stick is a cellphone-grade battery that is even better than a rechargeable battery and could be recycled for years!

The Bidi Cares Recycling Program

Bidi™ Vapor has seen the problem of improper battery disposal, which is why we have been using strong materials to increase the recyclability of the batteries in our Bidi Sticks.

We know that we have to do more, which is why we have launched the Bidi Cares movement.

Under this program, our customers can send back their used Bidi Sticks so those can be recycled. For every ten used sticks that you send to us, we give you 1 FREE Bidi Stick, which you can get on your next purchase of our products.

Batteries can have an impact on the environment, but we can lessen its impact with initiatives like the Bidi Cares Recycling Program.

Bidi™ Cares Announces New Eco-Friendly Platform

Bidi Cares: Save your Bidi, Save our Planet is the full recycling program of Bidi that aims and promotes to recycle empty Bidi™ Sticks. According to the National Geographic Society (2019), roughly 4.5 trillion cigarettes are discarded each year worldwide. This is through taking away cigarette smoke and, at the same time, protects the environment from irresponsible waste disposal.

Aside from this, improper waste disposal of batteries can be extremely toxic to our health and the environment. These used vaping products contain residual nicotine and lithium-ion batteries. These pose an imminent threat to domestic pets and wildlife if the residual nicotine goes into the environment. Even worse, it could get into children, if they happen to find and play with it.

The global environmental impact of batteries is assessed in terms of four leading indicators. These indicators further distinguish the impact of disposable and rechargeable batteries.

Consumption of Natural Resources

Production, transportation, and distribution of cells consumes natural resources, thereby contributing to an accelerating depletion of natural resources. Rechargeable batteries consume less nonrenewable natural resources than disposable batteries. This is because of the fewer rechargeable batteries to provide the same amount of energy.

Climate Change and Global Warming

The increase in the average temperature of the Earth’s surface is because of an increasing greenhouse gas effect. The manufacturing and transportation of batteries emit exhaust and other pollutants into the atmosphere, thereby contributing to the greenhouse effect.

Photochemical Smog Pollution and Air Acidification

Batteries undergo a photochemical reaction as they decompose in landfills. This triggers emissions of greenhouse gases—the greenhouse effect results in global warming/climate change. Air acidification is the accumulation of acidic substances in atmospheric particles. These particles, deposited by rain, have an impact on soil and ecosystems.

Ecotoxicity and Water Pollution

There are potential toxic risks with the emission of battery chemicals into aquatic ecosystems. Improper or careless handling of waste batteries can result in the release of corrosive liquids. Also, dissolved metals are toxic to plants and animals. Improper disposal of batteries in landfill sites can result in the release of toxic substances into groundwater and the environment.

Bidi Cares Promotes these Major Eco-friendly Initiative

You can ship us back 10 used Bidi Sticks, and we will return a FREE Bidi Stick on your next purchase. This is our way of thanking our customers for helping in our cause for proper waste disposal and sustainable development.

Bidi Sticks uses high-quality and recyclable batteries. However, our batteries can not only outperform the vapor competition, but it also allows us to save our planet with our customers’ help in recycling the entire Bidi Stick.

Help us save the environment by working with our consumers and promote a mindset of conscious and responsible waste disposal. Bidi Stick batteries are CE, FCC, & ROHS Certified, making sure that what you use is safe. These are batteries that allow its users to have a clean and consistent Bidi Experience through batteries that do not warm up when in use and top-grade level battery comparable to cellular phone batteries that are powered enough for it to be recycled.

Bidi™ Vapor Stands Against Underage Selling of Vapes

Bidi Vapor is a brand that prides itself on its innovative and eco-conscious product. The Bidi Stick makes a stand against the rampant sale of vape products to underage youth.

March 9, 2019. The rise of the vaping industry in the last few years has gained both commendation and criticism from the public. More companies have been introducing vaping products to the market with less liability to the buyers’ age and identity.

The increased popularity of e-cigarettes, such as vape, has invited a troublesome group of customers: curious teenagers. The complication comes when the incautious sale of vape products online and irresponsible marketing of some vaping brands occurs.

Despite the age-verification regulation, over 90% of vendors have not verified the ages of teenagers who have purchased the products online. According to a study, 86.4% of the companies in the industry sell e-cigarettes to underage youth online.

The exceedingly simple process of buying e-cigarettes online is the root of troubles with underage sales. It also draws in more teenagers who have not been smoking vape previously to test out vape products.

Teenagers using e-cigarettes are twice as likely to say they intend to smoke regular cigarettes. This is compared to those who have never touched the product. These findings result in a problem given the risk for nicotine addiction and its potential adverse health effects on adolescent brain development.

Bidi: An Overview

Bidi Vapor sees and acknowledges responsibility in preventing youth access to vape products. The company stands firmly with an advocacy. Bidi commits to adhering to the regulations towards the prevention of minors from acquiring a Bidi Stick. In line with this, Bidi Stick prohibits sales to minors by implementing useful digital toll gates and protection to guarantee restriction of product sales to anyone under the required legal age to avail of electronic cigarette products on the Bidi Stick website. 

Daily Order Limit

Bidi Vapor has placed a limit on the purchase of Bidi Stick per day. Bidi Stick is for personal use to support adult smokers as they transition. The daily order limit is to ensure that the sale of the Bidi Stick is for an adult smoker rather than for wholesale. With this, a consumer can only purchase a maximum limit of 30 Bidi Sticks per month. This limit of 30 Bidi Sticks can be bought one-time or in a staggered manner within the month.

Age Verification Process

Bidi Vapor has partnered with a leading company that provides age verification services. For any attempt to purchase any product within the Bidi Stick website, there is a comprehensive and mandatory public search done. This is to ensure and confirm the age qualification of the customer before completing the transaction.

In the instance that the verification system fails to verify the real age of the purchaser, the system asks the purchaser to present a government-issued identification card. The purchase transaction is put on hold until a Bidi Stick customer service representative confirms the authenticity of the identification card. 

Signature Upon Delivery

As an added preventive measure, Bidi Vapor also requires a signature upon delivery of Bidi Stick. This tollgate confirms the buyer’s identity. This ensures that the product does not fall to the hands of an underage person. 

Bidi Vapor has established these attentive measures to put a stop on underage sales of e-cigarettes. It also does not explicitly target the youth in marketing and labeling their products. Bidi Stick assists and cares for adult smokers in seamlessly transitioning and does not engage non-smokers and underage youth with any vape products. 

What Makes Bidi Different?

Bidi™ Vapor believes that every vaping company should follow suit in restricting the age of people who can access vape products. This restriction is to guarantee that vape products fall in the hands of adult smokers and not to underage youth. Bidi Vapor is a company that focuses on promoting responsible and cautious production and distribution of vape products. This goal is to prevent minor youth access.

At Bidi Vapor, it is our fuel to innovate towards the creation of our pride. The Bidi Stick genuinely desires to provide the best vaping experience to all its consumers. 

In addition to our vision, we are committed to ensure that the Bidi Stick does not fall into the hands of underage youth.
