ST. LOUIS, MO -- (Marketwire) -- 10/14/10 -- GreenNicotine, the producer of the nation's highest-quality e-cigarette, has just moved into the St. Louis market in a big way: opening seven outlets in area malls in the last few weeks.
"GreenNicotine loves St. Louis and from the reception we have received it is very clear that St. Louis loves GreenNicotine," states Sean Schoepflin, CEO and Founder of GreenNicotine. "We are glad to be here offering the highest quality e-cigarettes and I urge smokers to come down to an area mall and try GreenNicotine free of charge. They will be pleasantly surprised, like everyone who tries it."
A new report from Washington University in St. Louis shows Missourians smoke at a rate far higher than the national average. In fact, Missouri has the fourth highest smoking rate in the country.
GreenNicotine is now available at the following malls: Chesterfield, Mid Rivers, South County, St. Louis Mills, St. Louis Gallaria, West County, and the St. Clair Square Mall (in Fairview Heights, IL).
"GreenNicotine has worked diligently for years to create and provide people with the highest quality e-cigarette, free of contaminants," states GreenNicotine's Schoepflin. "We are the only company to use antibacterial tips, for example, and our products contain no tar or known carcinogens. We do not produce 'flavored' products and avoid selling to non-smokers. We even cost less than a third of what people pay for cigarettes."
According to the U.S. Surgeon General, cigarette smoking causes approximately 450,000 premature deaths and $193 billion in direct health-care expenditures and lost productivity in the U.S. annually. Cigarettes contain thousands of chemicals, including dozens of known carcinogens. Meanwhile, The American Association of Public Health Physicians states that their organization has become "a major advocate for the widespread use of electronic cigarettes," citing their relative safety compared to cigarettes, including the fact that they produce no second hand smoke.
"Cigarettes are killing millions of Americans and e-cigarettes offer a far, far better alternative. So I am urging smokers of the St. Louis area to come on down and try us out."
Green Nicotine products are available across the country and at www.greennicotine.com. The company offers a military discount.
