Did you know you can become an environmentally friendly vaper? There are ways we vapers can adopt to minimize our carbon footprint from vapes. The actions below show how you can vape sustainably and save money.
Ways to become an Environmentally Friendly Vaper
1. Use reusable devices
Minimizing actual waste from vaporizers will reduce your impact on the environment. There is an increase in disposable devices which use lithium batteries.
Using more disposable devices means manufacturing more lithium batteries. It means the mining of lithium will be intensified. Lithium mining is a process damaging the local ecosystems and the environment.
Hence, if you care about the environment, use a rechargeable vape device.
2. Move to refillable tanks
Most vapers adopt disposable and pod system vapes and move away from refilling vape tanks. Disposable vape devices have increased the amount of plastic waste.
Buying and using refillable tanks and pods with replaceable coils will lead to the manufacturing of less plastic and glass materials. Also, it saves you money.
Although batteries can be recycled, they are thrown away in black waste. The best way to dispose of the batteries is to return them to your vape supplier for recycling. Also, you can drop them to a recycling center.
Avoid disposing of coils in your trash but take them to an e-cig retailer for recycling. Vape juice bottles should also be recycled and not disposed of carelessly. For the e-liquid flavors, avoid flashing them into the toilet, pour them in sawdust and let them fry out.
4. Reduce power usage
You can be an environmentally friendly vaper by reducing the consumption of power.
Turn off your vape device when not in use. It also saves you the trouble of avoiding burning your vape coil.
5. Use high-strength e-liquid
Vapers tend to have a misconception about nicotine. They believe nicotine is the cause of smoking disease. Also, they underestimate the amount of nicotine required to satisfy their cravings.
The use of low-strength e-liquid will lead to more vaping, and more consumption of plastic and plastic from e-liquid bottles.
Using a high-strength e-liquid to meet your e-cigarette needs will see you vape less, leading to reduced consumption.
6. Choosing environmentally friendly suppliers
Look for vape suppliers who are adopting eco-friendly practices. Purchase your devices from a supplier with recyclable devices and 100% biodegradable filters.
Some suppliers are looking for ways in which they can become carbon neutral. So, ensure you get your devices from a supplier who collects, processes, and recycles the waste and lithium batteries.
7. Buy Local
Buying a vape device locally will help your state cut down on the fuel used yearly in the transportation of various goods. Overuse of fuel in the world is contributing to climate change affecting the environment.
When it comes to vape devices and e-liquids, you can get the best quality in your local area.
Most people can feel the benefits e-cigarettes have brought to vapers, in terms of finances and health. To become an environmentally friendly vaper, we have to do it together. Making small changes at a time will help us make vaping more sustainable. It will be a great improvement for our environment.
