It's important to be well-informed about the choices you make. When it comes to vaping, make sure you are making the healthy, informed choice: Choose vape free. Together with Na Joomelah and National Best Practice Unit (NBPU), Lung Foundation Australia have developed three short animations and an accompanying fact sheet to help you better understand how vaping can affect you, those around you and the environment.

Vapes can harm our environment

Vapes come in different forms, including disposable devices, refillable pod devices and refillable liquid devices. Vapes can cause harm to the environment. They present a triple threat: plastic waste, hazardous waste, and electronic waste. 

Vapes can harm you and those around you.

Vapes use cartridges with liquids, or ‘juice, which usually contain artificial flavourings and toxic chemicals. The vape liquid is heated into an aerosol and inhaled into the lungs. Vape liquid isn’t properly tested or regulated, and research shows many vapes contain nicotine, even if they say they don’t 

You can make the right choice

When you choose to vape, there may be things you are missing out on. Vaping can affect your physical health which can affect how you perform in sport and other activities. Spending your money on vapes adds up and may leave you having to miss out on things like grabbing a feed and so much more.
