UNDERSTANDING VAPING ETIQUETTE: PUBLIC VAPING GUIDE
As vaping gains traction in Australia, mastering the etiquette of public vaping is essential. Here, we present some helpful rules for vaping in public spaces for both newcomers and seasoned vapers, aimed at ensuring a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for everyone.
Here are some key recommendations when vaping in public:
- Consider Others
Always remember, not everyone may feel comfortable around vapers. Even though the vapours don’t contain smoke, it’s still crucial to be mindful of others. Select your flavours accordingly. Our shop boasts a wide variety of flavours, but when in public, less intrusive ones like apple might be the way to go.
- Adhere to Laws
The laws for vaping vary across Australia. Certain areas prohibit vaping, while others have designated zones for it. For instance, indoor vaping is not allowed in Victoria. Hence, ensure to respect the local laws wherever you are.
- Respect Personal Space
Maintain a safe distance when vaping, as the vapour clouds can cause discomfort for some people. Always ensure your clouds don’t intrude upon others’ personal space.
- Ask Before Vaping
It’s a good practice to ask for permission before vaping in public spaces. It allows others to express their comfort levels and decide to move if they wish. If declined, find a less populated area to vape.
- Dispose Responsibly
Ensure you properly discard your used vaping devices and parts. For example, used lithium-ion batteries should be taken to dedicated disposal bins or shops that accept them. Clean vape pods from residual e-liquid before tossing them into general waste bins.
- Avoid Direct Vapour Blowing
Blowing vapour directly onto someone is impolite and potentially harmful. Always direct your clouds away from people to maintain a respectful environment.
- No Need to Condemn Smokers
It’s essential to treat everyone with respect, including smokers. Many vapers are ex-smokers, and it’s more helpful to inform smokers about the potential benefits of vaping instead of criticizing their choices.
- Keep Vaping Away from Children
Remember, it’s illegal and inappropriate to vape in the presence of children, especially inside a car. Make sure your clouds are directed upwards and away from any children nearby.
- Respect No-Vaping Zones
Make sure you are aware of the places that prohibit the use of e-cigarettes. Abide by the rules and refrain from vaping in smoke-free indoor and outdoor spaces.
- Refrain from Vaping in Closed Spaces
Vaping in confined spaces with no ventilation is never advisable. If you’re in a vehicle with others, politely ask if they’re comfortable with you vaping. Rolling down a window to disperse the vapour quickly can make the experience more enjoyable for everyone.
- Don’t Vape in Public Transport
Vaping is generally prohibited in most public transport in Australia, including buses, trains, taxis, and rideshares. Similarly, it’s illegal to vape in cars with passengers under the age of 16. Also, most waiting areas for public transport disallow vaping.
