GreenSmartLiving aids California Sober Living Community
SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 28, 2013 / 3BL Media/ PRNewswire/ -- GreenSmartLiving announced today a partnership with California Sober Living communities in which it will donate its electronic cigarette starter kits to community residents. The initiative is not limited by time, locale or supply; the company plans to expand its donation efforts eastward, using California as a starting point for its sober living assistance.
Joe Brown, director of GreenSmartLiving sales in central California, said, "These donations are the start of something big. People recovering from drug and alcohol addiction are fighting a severe battle, turning toward traditional cigarettes in the process, ultimately trading one addiction for another." Brown believes the electronic cigarettes are a smarter alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
Kathy Watt, executive director of Van Ness Recovery House, said that 80% of her clients became traditional cigarette chain smokers when trying to stay off alcohol and drugs.
As the only major electronic cigarette company sourcing the nicotine in its products from non-tobacco crops, the company has strived to advocate smart lifestyle alternatives since its 2010 inception. "We do not want to just sell to and profit from the general public like a normal e-cigarette company, we want to give back to those who need us most," said Brown.
Dennis Fox, President of M.E. Fox & Co. a GreenSmartLiving distributor, commented, "M.E. Fox & Co. is excited to see GreenSmartLiving take such an active and passionate role in the sober living environment."
Michael Haydel Jr., Director of Dominion House Sober Living, sees the power in the change GreenSmartLiving advocates. "I have never been a fan of our clients smoking cigarettes. When Joe came to the house and donated several GreenSmartLiving e-cigs, I was impressed and thrilled. I feel like a huge portion of the sober living community can benefit from this product. I am grateful to GreenSmartLiving for helping those in need."
