Vaping vs Smoking in Terms of our environment
July 16, 2020
We have been in this vaping vs smoking debate since we were first introduced to vaping. Here’s another topic of debate that revolves around vaping vs smoking.
Is smoking better for our environment or vaping?
Let’s find it out below.
It has been a part of this world from the longest we can remember. From the start we have read about how smoking cigarettes harms our environment.
We can’t deny facts, smokers leave cigarette butts behind that are found in trash cans on our sidewalks, roads, and parking lots. Cigarette butts are still one of a major problem we are facing to this date.
They take around 18 months to 10 years to decompose! Which means that the cigarette filters are full of tar, nicotine, and other toxins that can seep into the ground and affect every organism that comes into contact with them. Furthermore, these cigarette leftovers are pushed by rain into drains and eventually reach the ocean where they release toxins.
Cigarette smoke is also extremely harmful for the environment because tobacco smoke contains approximately more than 7,000 chemicals and 70 of them can cause cancer.
Even, excessive exposure to secondhand smoke gravely affects the cardiovascular system and can cause coronary heart disease and strokes.
On the other hand, vaping has been used as a tool to help smokers quit smoking because It helps reduce the exhale and inhale of toxins.
Vape devices use a small or no amount of nicotine and just have flavorings added to the E-liquids.
Most vaping devices have refillable pods and tanks which means most devices are reusable. This quality makes vaping eco-friendly, because vaping doesn’t play a part in contributing to the planet’s pollution.
Vaping smoke doesn’t release harmful toxin and e-cigarettes do not really produce smoke so vaping in public is not harmful.
People don’t usually mind vape clouds but smoking in public places is considered to be extremely harmful and is not at all accepted by the community.
This information that we have gathered is enough to understand that vaping is a better alternative to smoking. Aside from our own health, vaping is also not harmful to the people around. As well as it adds to the well-being of our mother earth.-->
