2020 Menthol Cigarette Ban Sees SMOKO Offer Free Menthol E-Cigarette Starter Kits

SMOKO offers free menthol e-cigarette starter kits to customers who face the menthol cigarette ban in May.

On May 20th, 2020, a new law will come into effect banning the sale of menthol flavoured cigarettes as well as other flavoured tobacco. This shift is yet another big step to reduce the number of smokers in the UK and represents a greater effort to prevent young people taking up smoking at all. The ban entered into law back in 2016, in accordance with the EU Tobacco Products Directive and will go ahead, despite the UK leaving the European Union on January 31st.

Around 1.3 million menthol smokers will be affected by the ban, which also covers all flavoured tobaccos (excluding shisha) and rolling tobacco. Since the government announced the ban in the new year, e-cigarette company, SMOKO, has reported a 250% rise year on year rise in sales of their starter kit that contain menthol e-liquids. This sudden rise in popularity indicates that current smokers are being proactive in finding an alternative ahead of the ban and are making the switch to e-cigarettes. To aid current menthol smokers in making the transition to a healthier, smoke-free lifestyle, SMOKO is now offering a free menthol e-cigarette starter kit worth £9.99.

SMOKO co-founder, Mike, said: "The up-coming ban on menthol cigarettes is another great step to reducing adult cigarette consumption in the UK, this is another great initiative to encourage smokers to look for healthier alternatives and to quit cigarettes completely. To help users quit we have made the decision to offer a free menthol e-cig starter kit open to all UK adult menthol smokers. They simply need to pay for the UK shipping."

The SMOKO mint breeze starter kit is small, discreet and easy to use. It offers a realistic smoking sensation but there is no smell and no messy refilling. The flavour is made in the UK and fully complies to industry standards. To get the deal, customers can simply enter the code MENTHOLFREE at the checkout. This is a limited offer with just 2,500 starter packs available on a one per person basis. All applicants must be 18 or over.
