Did you know that we are still celebrating Earth Day? The official Earth Day was this past Sunday, but we are holding on as long as possible, because e-cigarettes are so environmentally friendly! There are only a few days left of our two-week long event called "Switch To A Cleaner Alternative". Smokers are invited to the Vapor4Life Smokeless Lounge & Store to trade in their pack of traditional cigarettes for a free electronic cigarette. We are located in the Sky Harbor Business Park in Northbrook, Illinois at 4100 Commercial Ave. The Lounge is open Monday through Friday 9:00am to 7:00pm CST. The event ends on Wednesday, May 2. During the event, community members ages 18 and older are able to receive their free e-cigarette, learn how the technology works, and drop off any rechargeable batteries for recycling. Trillions of cigarette butts are littered every year, causing environmental clean-up issues and dangers to wildlife. Electronic cigarettes help reduce that waste by using rechargeable, recyclable battery-operated devices. An e-cigarette battery may be recharged an average of 200 to 300 times. After its typical life cycle of three to six months (depending on usage), it can easily be recycled. Vapor4Life has joined Call2Recycle, the only free rechargeable battery and cell phone collection program in North America. If you are in the Chicagoland area please feel free to stop by and drop off any rechargeable batteries that you are looking to dispose of. We will be happy to take them off your hands for you. If you have smoker friends in the area, this is the perfect time to bring them to our Lounge and teach them all about e-cigarettes, and even collect their own free one!
