More vape, less waste

June 5 is World Environment Day, and that means today is the perfect time to pay attention to how our actions affect the planet’s natural resources. But here’s the thing: You don’t have to run off into the woods and live off the grid like some kind of 21st century hermit to make a difference (Not that there’s anything wrong with that). There are small changes that each of us can make to keep this old planet in good shape, and vaping blu eCigs® electronic cigarettes is a step in the right direction.

We know this might sound like a self-serving sales pitch, but when you consider the fact that almost 600 million trees are destroyed each and every year to provide fuel to dry tobacco, our point becomes a bit clearer. And if you’re not shocked by the fact that smokers throw away at least 4.5 trillion cigarette butts a year, then you’re not paying attention. This is a huge, staggering number. There are an estimated 300 billion stars in our entire galaxy—which means that these discarded butts outnumber the stars in the sky by 15 to 1.

On the other hand, blu™ electronic cigarettes don’t generate this waste, and our lithium-ion batteries can be recycled (find a local recycler). We also make sure that our presence at many events includes an environmental element, as you can see in this video of the blu “Cover Your Butts” program at Bonnaroo, where festival attendees were encouraged to collect and redeem cigarette butts for merchandise. You’ll also frequently see the blu Butt Patrol making the rounds at these events, providing a gentle reminder to keep butts off the ground and in receptacles where they belong.

So even if you never observed World Environment Day, start this year by just keeping the environment in mind, and make it an everyday occurence!

Aside from World Environment Day, June is absolutely packed with some weird and wacky holidays you might not even be aware of. Check it out.
