Date:5/25/2010

Cigarette butts account for roughly 1.7 billion pounds of the non-biodegradable trash worldwide. With its tobacco alternative products, e-cigs, Smart Smoke has single handedly prevented more than 10 million cigarettes from being smoked in Spokane County, Washington.

Spokane, WA (PRWEB) May 25, 2010 -- With more than 5,000 new customers in less than a year, Spokane based Smart Smoke is making a positive local impact on the environment with its tobacco alternative products, single-handedly preventing more than 10 million cigarettes from being smoked in Spokane County, Washington, alone.

While research is conclusive regarding cigarette smoking's negative health effects on human health, additional studies show the damaging impact on the environment as cigarette butts are the most common piece of litter in the world.

Cigarette butts account for roughly 1.7 billion pounds of the non-biodegradable trash worldwide. Made with a plastic material, cigarette butts take up to 25 years to degrade while leaching chemicals into soil and groundwater.

One in eight trees cut down in the world is due to tobacco growing or curing. It is estimated that 600 million trees are destroyed each year for this purpose. In addition, cigarettes are a leading cause of house fires in the U.S., causing one in every four fire related deaths.

"Since our e-cig products contain no tobacco, there is no burning or combustion and therefore no harmful carbon dioxide is emitted and of course no first or second hand smoke," said Smart Smoke president, Josh Jamerson. "By eliminating tobacco, there is no farming or harvesting of land, no deforestation, and no pesticides. That's significant because growing tobacco requires the use of more pesticides per acre than any other crop grown."

Smart Smoke e-cigs simulate the sensation of smoking without exposing the user to harmful cancer causing agents and other dangerous chemicals normally associated with traditional tobacco products.

The realistic simulated smoke, which is actually a vapor mist, harmlessly evaporates in the surrounding air within a few seconds when exhaled.
