America Kicks Butts

America Kicks Butts

Back in 1996, a day was devoted to youth activism against Big Tobacco. Kick Butts Day has been held every year since, with various groups staging events at schools and other locations around the United States.

These events help raise awareness of the epidemic of tobacco use, inspire kids to stay tobacco-free, and encourage elected officials to enact laws that protect children from tobacco.

Dedicated to Responsible Practices
Halo fully supports the vital cause that Kick Butts Day represents. We’re proud to be one of the responsible manufacturers that has never and will never market our products to children. We’ve been dedicated to keeping kids away from e-cigarettes throughout our history.

Halo was among the first to use childproof caps on e-liquid bottles — a practice that has since become industry standard — and have an age-verification process that restricts access to our website to adults of legal vaping age.

Is There a Smoking Alternative for Adults?
Halo’s mission also includes showing adults who smoke that they have an alternative.

There’s no question smoking comes with many hazards. Traditional combustible tobacco cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals. Sometimes the best route is to eliminate as many hazards as possible by making a switch.

With a variety of tobacco flavors and nicotine strengths, and the same “hand-to-mouth” experience that many smokers enjoy, vaping is a strong alternative for adults who smoke traditional cigarettes. It’s also a good way for them to stick it to Big Tobacco — which is what Kick Butts Day is about, after all.

Smoking stinks, plain and simple. If you smoke cigarettes, your car, carpets, furniture, curtains, clothes, and hair all probably smell like cigarettes. E-cigarettes release pleasant odors in the air that do not saturate fabrics with offensive smells.

Combustible cigarettes, as their name suggests, burn. With vaping, there are no matches or lighters needed. And no holes appear in your clothes or furniture because hot ash fell on them.

Vaping is generally cheaper by comparison, too. If you pay about $20 for one 30 ml bottle of e-liquid, for example, that bottle may be equivalent to up to three cartons of cigarettes, depending on your usage habits. You won’t get even one carton of cigarettes for that amount of money!
