In this week’s episode, named for our new #Vapes are Trash campaign, we discuss the environmental harms potentially caused by hazardous e-cigarette waste.
Morgan, an 11th grade student, provides details about this Instagram competition developed with our youth initiative Students Against Vaping e-Cigarettes (SAVe) and explains why this issue should resonate with her peers. Share Morgan’s segment with your kids!
Our second guest is Dr. Jeremiah Mock, Associate Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, a leading expert on the environmental impact of tobacco products. Dr. Mock explains the dangers posed by rapidly proliferating vaping waste; why companies including Juul, Stig, and Puff Bar should clean up the mess; and what role FDA could have in making sure they do it!
