Smoking’s Effect On The Environment

Smoking

Smoking is a grave problem causing serious health issues like chronic lung diseases, heart diseases, pregnancy-related issues, cancers etc. Though the human race is aware of its ill effects, every day thousands of teens stepping into their adulthood take their first puff, and consequently leads to the increase in the number of daily smokers and chain smokers. The dreadful first smoke is usually done in enthusiasm but then engulfs the young adults in its addiction.

It is appalling that smoking is not only injurious to the one who smokes but to other mankind and the environment as well. From the start of cultivation to processing and towards the end stop of being stocked in the store, and finally, the disposal of the cigarette butts as litter is another major issue resulting in water pollution. The whole journey of Tobacco impacts the mother-nature irreparably.

Here is an Infographic from Gray Haze which enlightens with some eye-opening statistics about the effect of Smoking on the environment.
