The 3 Main Advocacy Vaping Organizations
In the United States, advocacy groups have an extensive history, and in the vaping industry, there’s no exception. These groups ensure that the voices of consumers across the country are heard in both federal and state capitals. There are groups advocating for all kinds of products, services, and lifestyles.
These three vaping advocacy organizations are vigorously working for your right to use electronic cigarettes, vaporziers, MODS, and e-liquids. Basically, these groups are fighting for your right to vape.
CASAA (Consumer Advocates for Smoke-free Alternatives Association)
Their mission is to “ensure the availability of effective, affordable and reduced-harm alternatives to smoking” mainly through public consciousness and education. It is a consumer-based organization, meaning all are invited to join, share their testimonials, and participate in calls-to-action by contacting legislators and other regulators. Check them out if you haven’t heard about them before.
SFATA (Smoke Free Alternative Trade Association)
SFATA members are vaping businesses, from independent vape shops to major corporations. This association works to forge out a structure for meaningful industry standards, quality manufacturing practices and science-based research in this industry. The organization also works overtime, replying to erroneous stories, biased research, and blitzes on the industry that aren't based with any real scientific fact(s).
ECIG (Electronic Cigarette Industry Group)
A non-profit 501c6 association of consumers, manufacturers, importers and distributors of electronic cigarettes. This group sees its duty as delivering unbiased information on e-cigarettes, presenting forums for members and state and federal agencies to use as a platform for talks regarding public health, regulatory affairs and industry affairs.
