Are Electronic Cigarettes Harmful the Environment?

By Meshal aljabir

Electronic cigarettes are rechargeable battery operated devices. They do not use tobacco, instead they vaporise a liquid mix of propylene glycol and/or vegetable glycerin plus food grade flavorings at a relatively low temperature to create a vapor that looks like smoke In addition to the liquids and other consumable items, there is the main part of the device itself to consider. The battery and housing, a small amount of electronic circuitry and associated components such as a charging cable and pack. E-cigarettes aren’t that entire complex and are small devices but like all electronics quality plays an important role in the impact the equipment will have environmentally speaking. Most components can be recycled but a poor quality device won’t last as long, creating more waste and it takes energy to recycle there are also safety aspects.
