Plain Packaging Bid May Highlight Benefits of Electronic Cigarettes
MANCHESTER, England, September 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Major headway has been made in the last few days in the bid to reduce the sale of
tobacco all over the world. Only last week Australian officials approved a move towards
using plain packaging in order to reduce the glamour associated with smoking cigarettes
with the aim of making the practice less fashionable for children and young people drawn
by effective cigarette marketing and branding.
Campaigners hope that other countries will take note of the Australian decision which
effectively tears down any challenges to plain packaging in the Australian market.
Officials in the UK, Europe and the US are already working on similar projects to try and
introduce plain cigarette packaging legislation in order to tackle their own issues with
There are a whole host of reasons why plain packaging may prove a success, curbing the
harmful effects of the chemicals found in cigarettes and helping the next generation to

and the benefits they offer. It is entirely possible that E-cigarettes may become the
preferred option for smokers should legislation ever come to pass forcing tobacco

The next step may be to ban the sale of tobacco altogether which, it is argued, would
represent a real financial gain to smokers since E-cigarettes are vastly cheaper than
packs of branded tobacco – although this is something that could be years off as yet. This
is to say nothing of the health benefits of switching to an E Cigarette
[http://www.vipelectroniccigarette.co.uk ] brand that uses no deleterious substances in
providing a nicotine hit.
The team at VIP encourages smokers to give electronic cigarettes in order to increase
their options in light of the potential forthcoming legislation.
