#BackVapingSaveLives Campaign

The #BackVapingSaveLives campaign has been launched to give vapers the chance to fight the World Health Organisation’s call for ever greater restrictions on e-cigarettes.

We Vape are proud to be a supporter of the campaign to send a message to the British Government to #BackVapingSaveLives, so that millions of smokers can switch from combustible cigarettes to a scientifically proven safer alternative – vaping.

In November, Governments will meet at COP9 to talk about how to reduce smoking. However, under pressure from anti-vaping activists and the WHO, Governments are looking to introduce further restrictions on vaping. This is despite overwhelming evidence vaping is the best way to quit smoking, with 3.2 million smokers having made the switch to vaping and 50,000 more quitting cigarettes for vapes every year. This is why it is more important than ever for UK vapers to put pressure on the UK government to back vaping at COP9. 

3 main aims of the #BackVapingSaveLives campaign:

  1. Getting the UK government to back vaping on an international stage in order to protect the NHS’s pro vaping policies.
  2. Allowing consumers to represent the UK at COP9, to showcase the superiority of the UK’s approach to smoking cessation over more damaging, illiberal alternatives.
  3. Harm reduction should be front and centre to the FCTC and COP9 process in order that vaping and reduced risks products can save lives around the world.

How can you get involved? 

The #BackVapingSaveLives campaign needs you to join the postcard campaign by filling out your details and including a message about how vaping has helped you. 

One postcard will be sent to the Secretary of State for the Department of Health & Social Care another will be sent to your individual Member of Parliament who will hopefully respond to you.

You can also visit the back vaping resources page to use some images for your own social media profiles in order to post your support for the campaign and spread the message.
