Even as the smoking rate has gone down, cigarette butts seem to be everywhere – sidewalks, roadsides, beaches, waterways—virtually everywhere we go. As vapers, we’re not contributing towards cigarette butts. Did you know that trillions of cigarette butts are thrown into the environment every year, where they leach nicotine and heavy metals before turning into microplastic pollution? Awful, right? Let’s take a look at this comparison: Those big numbers make us think about the impact humans have on earth and we should do absolutely everything to reduce it and protect our precious planet. At vape.co.uk we care about our planet and want you to do so too. But how we, vapers, can do that? Take a look at our tips on how to save a planet with vape.co.uk: What can I do as a vaper to become more eco-friendly? Recycle, recycle, recycle…and gift! Every component of e-liquid bottles should be recyclable, including the lid, the outer box and the bottle itself. It is up to the distributor which parts are or are not, but good news.. you can recycle all of our available e-liquids. But..how do I do that? Simply crush the box, empty the bottle – and here’s a warning – do not just pour e-liquid into the sink, it will end in the waterways. Separate any glass and plastic and dispose of accordingly. Be sure to clean any leftover e-liquid residue, as liquid nicotine may be harmful to the environment, Find some absorbent material, soak it up and dispose it safely. Use a designated plastic recycling facility to throw away the plastics. Have some leftover e-liquids you’re not using anymore? Bought a wrong flavour but can’t return it to the store? If you know people that are vaping as well just regift your liquids to them! Simple as this. Voila! Your journey to become an eco-friendly vaper begins here. 2. Buy local Transportation of goods across air, sea and land presents economic opportunities and also creates significant environmental challenges, including from criteria air pollutants and greenhouse gases. To prevent that we need to support UK e-liquids and vapes manufacturers. That will help decrease the air mileage and transportation as opposed to the US or European produced e-liquids. We stock UK produced e-liquids. Check our best summer flavours here. 3. Switch to long-lasting devices According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place. Making a new product requires a lot of materials and energy – raw materials must be extracted from the earth, and the product must be fabricated then transported to wherever it will be sold. As a result, reduction and reuse are the most effective ways you can save natural resources, protect the environment and save money. Instead, when buying your new kit, go for reliable, good quality, long-lasting devices. We do recommend going for brands such as Innokin, Smok or Aspire which will last at least 6 up to 12 months to reduce the frequency with which you need to replace your kit. Check out the products we chose: Innokin Coolfire Z50 VW Kit The Innokin Coolfire Z50 kit is the next generation in the Coolfire series.
