People vow to never buy disposable vapes again after seeing how they're made following ban

People vow to never buy disposable vapes again after seeing how they're made following ban

It's put more people off single use e-cigarettes as the ban comes into place

Even though the number of people using disposable vapes is now set to decline quickly following the newly imposed ban, that number may increase even more if users were to see exactly how they are made.

Last week, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced to LADbible that disposable vapes will soon be banned completely in the UK in a bid to crack down on the rise in vaping amongst young people and children.

Following this shock move, a video has been shared online showing how these disposable e-cigarettes are made, and it's a pretty stomach-churning watch. Check it out:

The recently re-posted video shows a production line featuring hundreds of disposable vapes being put together, and one particular part that is really grabbing people's attention.

In the video, we see how the vape is put together from the internal wiring to the plastic casing and the mouthpiece on top. The person assembling the vapes doesn't appear to be wearing gloves and as they handle the piece of plastic that would ultimately go in our mouths, and it's got some people swearing off vapes as a result.

Underneath the video, one person commented: “You are telling me that they are touching the tips of the vape without any glove on?? Didn't they know that their hands release grease constantly soo imagine while working?

"Bruuuh i would not buy these lol I ain't looking to have a stranger finger print on my vape tips when i buy it."

Another person added: "Well, that doesn't look very appetizing, how they attach the mouthpieces without gloves, see 0:28.

“That was definitely the last one I bought after seeing that. (gag)"

And one pointed out the sheer amount of plastic used, with them writing: "What a wasteful product."

Vaping has become an even more topical issue as recent figures show the number of children using vapes in the past three years has tripled, with use among younger children also rising as nearly one in ten (9 percent) of 11-15 year olds now use vapes.

The alarming figures have also seen the Government announce plans to crack down further on underage sales, as well as banning disposable vapes and putting preventative measures in place such as restricting flavours, toning down branding and removing them from display so they're less appealing to young people.

The mouthpieces appear to be added by a worker not wearing gloves, and that's given many viewers the ick.

Speaking about the plans to ban vaping products, Health and Social Care Secretary Victoria Atkins said: "Smoking is still the single largest preventable cause of death in England.

"Almost every minute of every day someone is admitted to hospital with a smoking-related disease. And it costs society £17 billion each year - putting a huge burden on our NHS.

"That’s why we are driving the way forward through our smoke-free generation plan, which will prevent our children from starting this dangerous habit.

"The health advice is clear: vapes should only ever be used as a tool to quit smoking. But we are committed to doing more to protect our children from illicit underage vaping, and by banning disposable vapes we’re preventing children from becoming hooked for life."

Health Minister Andrea Leadsom added: "We are in the midst of a worrying rise in young people vaping. I want to stop youth vaping in its tracks - and a ban on disposable vapes is central to that.

"Nicotine is highly addictive - and so it is completely unacceptable that children are getting their hands on these products, many of which are undeniably designed to appeal to young people.

"Along with tougher enforcement measures, we are making sure vapes are aimed at the people they were designed to help - adults who are quitting smoking."
