Electronic Cigarettes: Everyday Environmental Choices

Cigarette PollutionWant to be more environmentally conscious? Drop the tobacco and use e-cigarettes.

Well e-cigarettes are not typically considered a typical eco-friendly item, there are many benefits to using them that go easy on the environment. Especially when compared to traditional cigarettes, if you’re going to make a choice based on personal responsibility and the desire to opt for the smoking method with the least impact, vaping is the way to go.

As a smoker one of the best things you can do to do your part in making wiser choices is to stop using tobacco and switch to e-cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are better for the environment, and a fantastic alternative because they are reusable, they don’t contain tobacco, they do not produce a fraction of the trash that traditional cigarettes produce, and they do not pose same threat as being so easily littered like traditional cigarettes.

Tobacco cigarettes pollute a massive amount throughout the world, ending up in rivers, lakes, streams, as well as plenty of other wildlife habitats. They are considered the most polluted items in the world and unfortunately the pollution does not end when the cigarette is strewn on the floor after a smoker is finished with the butt. Cigarette butts do not decompose efficiently, and as they slowly break down, they begin to release all of their toxic compounds, polluting on a smaller, yet still toxic, scale. They constantly end up  in the digestive systems of wild animals, and contribute to countless deaths in the natural world.

While e-cigarettes do contain some disposable components, such as cartridges, these are used and changed less frequently, they are harder to ignorantly toss on the ground, and just for perspective, one e-cigarette cartridge is equal to about 20 traditional cigarettes.

Being more eco-conscious is about making wise decisions and improving your daily choices. And with all of the other other many benefits of electronic smoking compared to the countless negatives of traditional smoking, being able to use the method that offers similar experience with so many more benefits as well as being better for the environment makes vaping the smart way to smoke.

E-Liquids: Childproof Bottles Are About to Happen Everywhere

Childproofing Nicotine E-LiquidWhile the current state of regulations that involve electronic cigarettes and all related products is far from being set in stone, one area that has received complete and overwhelming approval from all sides is in regards to e-liquid companies and brands carrying them, being required to have child-proof caps on all bottles to prevent unnecessary accidents. While no concrete laws are set in place yet, certain bills requiring companies to have child-proof caps on e-liquid bottles are being reviewed across the country.

The subject of nicotine liquid getting into the hands of children has been a hot topic for the industry for a while now, and with the popularity of e-liquid usage consistently on the rise, and more and more brands emerging, and more people vaping in general, this regulation could not come at a better time.

Despite how enjoyable nicotine is, it does come with some risk and it is very responsible and wise to put the safety of children first. The risks come whether the liquid is handled with bare hands, or gets accidentally ingested, and while for adults the consequences may not be that bad, for children in this predicament, they could be highly dangerous, and in rare cases, even deadly.

While EverSmoke is a brand that does not sell any liquids individually, per se, we are fully in support of this type of reasonable e-cigarette regulation. Our line of e-cigarette cartridges do contain liquids in them, however it is very difficult to access the liquid, unlike with bottles of e-liquid, which can be easily mistaken for other things. Our sister brand, VaporFi specializes in nicotine e-liquids, and they have long been using child-proof caps on their bottles, seeing it as the right thing to do.

Electronic cigarettes, e-liquids, and all products of this genre are intended to be used by adults, and never by children, so taking measures to further keep them from being used by people who should not be using them is the responsible way to go.

Ways Vaping Can Help You Live Better

feeling-good-living-betterOf all the reasons people make the decision to leave tobacco behind in favor of the electronic smoking option, having a better quality of life is probably the best of them all. Have you considered all of the ways that smoking brings you down? Whether it’s the insane expense, the horrid smell, or the stigma attached to you just for being a smoker, these little things add up big time, and sometimes you don’t realize how annoying it is until they’re gone. So if you need a reason to make the switch, here are some of the amazing ways e-smoking can help you live better. How you spend your days is essentially how you spend your life; make everyday wonderful without smoke!

-A Cleaner Life

Smoke is filthy, smelly, and its tar accumulates on everything it comes into contact with; whether it’s your Dupioni silk drapes, or your lungs, it is nothing good. When you halt the smoke and tobacco, you halt the dirty aspects too. Vapor is clean, odorless, and does not come with the baggage of tar. Vapers who vape indoors have reported no negative side effects!

-Freedom

When you switch to vaping, you get so many freedoms! Like freedom from the endless butts, the freedom to vape in so many more places than previously welcome, the freedom from constantly worrying about running out of cigarettes, the freedom from worrying about whether you smell bad, if your breath is unpleasant, or if others will look down on you because of your habit.

-Modern Methods for Modern Times

Vaping is utterly modern. It’s a very tech thing, allowing you all the digital control you’ve come to expect in today’s day and age. Vaping can be easily integrated into daily life so easily, and it cuts out so many of the annoying aspects of smoking. Being able to charge batteries, often from your digital devices, having a variety of accessories that can take your e-cigs anywhere with you, and being able to lessen your carbon footprint by using reusable, non-polluting e-cigs just fits modern life so much better than traditional cigarettes!

How to Choose an E-Cigarette Brand

eversmoke-boxWith so many brands out there, we totally understand the overwhelming feeling that can come over you when trying to decide on one. Choosing a starter kit can be tricky, but choosing a brand can be even trickier, and more important! Well, one of the best things about there being such a vast selection in brands in this market is that there is sure to be at least one that fits your needs specifically.

Here are some things to ponder when narrowing down the options, as finding the right brand can mean succeeding over hightailing it back to tobacco, which I’m sure you’d rather not do!

  1. Make a list of brands you’re considering, and which ones seem to fit your needs. If you haven’t even got an idea about brands, we totally suggest EverSmoke. This is an awesome starting point for smokers looking for great quality and simplicity when switching. There’s no lack of style with this brand, and you will get a solid alternative cigarette here.

  2. Decide what type of device you want, e-cigarette or vaporizer. Vaporizers are more high-tech, more advanced, and take a little more effort to use and understand. E-cigs are designed to be as similar to traditional cigarettes as possible, which makes them the top choice for many smokers who want to go tobacco-free, smoke-free, and prefer less technology.

  3. Consider flavors. All brands offer different options and choices here, regardless of the format you’re going after. With e-cigs, you’ll be using disposable cartridges, so you won’t be filling the liquids yourself. In which case, EverSmoke offers 10 different flavors to choose from, so you’ll surely find at least a couple that resonate with you.

  4. Nicotine strength: find a brand that has what you’re looking for, and if you don’t know what you’re looking for, choose a brand that has a large selection. It can vary from brand to brand, and some don’t offer 0mg, some don’t go higher than 16mg, and some have such lousy quality regardless of what they have labeled, you can’t trust the nicotine to do its thing.

  5. Research each brand when it comes to such matters as refund policy, warranties, and how good they are about customer service. Things happen, and getting stuck with products you don’t want, or ending up with things that stop working without the company backing up your purchases can make you feel hopeless. Scope out each brand’s social media pages and look out for online reviews to see what other customers have had to say. A good reputation accounts for a whole lot.

Choosing an e-cigarette brand is the first step to embarking on this amazing lifestyle that can avail so much freedom, savings, and fun.

What Awaits You When Switching to E-Cigarettes

Switch to E-CigsAfraid to make the switch to vaping? Scared to let go of your past dependence in exchange for a better way to enjoy your daily life, and nicotine without the baggage? Here are some of our favorite reasons to switch to electronic cigarettes, in case you need a reminder. Millions of vapers have made the switch, and haven’t looked back. What are you waiting for?

-A Tobacco-Free Body: Being free from tobacco benefits nearly every facet of your health, and switching to an alternative method of smoking that does not involve tobacco is one of the best things you can do for yourself.

-A Smoke-Free Home: The tar from tobacco cigarettes is sticky, gooey, and has the capacity to leave behind nasty yellow stains on the teeth, hands, and practically anything it comes into contact with over an extended period of time. In the home, it can stain your walls, carpets, upholsteries, and nearly anything porous, leaving behind a tell-tale discoloration, as well as a musty, funky smell. Vaping, on the hand doesn’t!

-Tastier Meals: Cigarette smoke destroys your taste buds and your sense of smell, the two components that are responsible for your ability to taste things. Once you stop smoking, your sense of taste begins to recover. This is one of the best parts of switching to vaping.

-A More Dazzling Smile: Cigarettes can do a number on your oral health, and destroy your teeth, making your smile atrocious. Definitely not something to smile about.

-More Money in Your Wallet: Everyone needs more, and vaping is much more cost effective.

-Peace of Mind: Knowing you aren’t part of the global pollution problem is a great thing, even if you are of the responsible sort and dispose of your cigarette butts properly. Tobacco cigarettes are the world’s most polluted item; it’s nice to know you aren’t adding to the problem.

-Smelling Fresh and Clean: Smelling like you’ve been in a bar all night isn’t exactly a sexy smell! Vapers love carrying the scent of fresh air with them everywhere they go, knowing no one will be put off by their smoky smell.

So if you are still smoking cigarettes, why not give e-cigs a try? Look at all the things you’ve got to lose, and how much you have to gain!

E-Cigarettes & Heat: What You Need to Know

EverSmoke Batteries and HeatHeat and e-cigarettes can make for a bad situation. Your e-cigarette batteries are your lifeline to vaping. Without them, you obviously won’t get very far, and if they are damaged or compromised, you’re out of luck if you don’t have backup. The majority of the batteries used in vaping devices are lithium ion, and they need specific conditions to perform optimally, especially in regards to temperature extremes.

Ideally, the temperatures your batteries are kept at should never dip below 14 degrees Fahrenheit, or rise above 86 degrees. There is a whole range of things that can go wrong, from lesser effectiveness, to the battery totally failing. In fact, the most common cause of electronic cigarette battery issues can be attributed to overheating. Here are some of the signs your battery may exhibit if it has had an overexposure to too hot temperatures:

  • Expanded body
  • Has stopped working
  • Bubbles
  • Signs of melting
  • Bulging
  • Smoking (not vaping)
  • Contracts
  • Sparks
  • Flames
  • In extremely rare circumstances, it can become explosive
  • And shows other signs of damage

And it’s not just the heat that is a problem. Extreme cold can cause the internal parts of an electronic cigarette battery to expand, which can cause irreparable damage.

It has long been documented that lithium ion batteries can become explosive when subjected to temperatures above 100 F in a multitude of devices, including laptops and cellphones. While this is extremely rare, precautions should be taken to protect both yourself and your batteries.

Considering all that these tiny devices provide you with, and how little effort it takes to truly safeguard them, it pays to take the extra steps if you are faced with temperature extremes. Proper and attentive care will give you the best performance out of your e-cigarette batteries, and will ensure that your investment yields the best return, while ensuring your safety. Take care of them, and they’ll surely take care of you!

Electronic Cigarettes and the Environment

cigarettes-on-beach-sizedJust by switching to electronic cigarettes, smokers can do the environment a great service. Traditional cigarettes, by and large, are the single most polluted item on earth. Imagine, of all the trash that can be found in the global environment, the majority can be traced to a single source. That’s a lot of trash and a lot of cigarettes smoked. Whether smokers just choose to be ignorant when carelessly flicking their butts, or they assume that because they feel like paper they will easily biodegrade, cigarette butts are a nuisance anywhere they are discarded outside of a trash bin. Here’s a look at the ways e-cigarettes help the earth, because if there’s one place cigarette butts do not belong, it’s the environment.

-They are reusable. Having a reusable product means overall less gets consumed. You put a device into rotation, and you don’t produce much trash. And that includes trash that so often ends up not in a receptacle.

-Being reusable also means that there is a break in the endless cycle of traditional cigarettes and the constant stream of trash. A pack a day contributes 20 cigarette butts a day. Or 140 weekly, per person, whichever way they get discarded. It’s a ton of trash!

-E-Liquid bottles, made of plastic or glass, can easily be recycled. E-liquid is a very economic option for smokers, and it also has the benefit of being better on the environment than traditional cigarettes.

-E-cigarette cartridges last the equivalent of 20 cigarettes, and they are not so (thoughtlessly) easy to toss on the ground after use. When users change them, they are typically tossed in the trash due to their size and weight, unlike traditional cigarettes.

-Because they are less likely to be irresponsibly discarded, e-cigarettes and cartridges run less of a risk ending up a problem to wildlife. Unlike traditional cigarettes, which too often get consumed by birds and fish, e-cigarettes are less likely to get tossed into their environments and mistaken for food.

While the concept of perfectly “green” e-cigarette technology has yet to be developed, when it comes to smoking, electronic cigarettes are clearly the more responsible option. Traditional cigarettes are problematic on so many levels, and when you have the availability and option of vaping, with cleaner, more earth-friendly devices, there is no reason to use tobacco any longer!

The War on E-Cigs

7fe32cb6d9a2459c08c20a8f6c5f15adPropaganda, half truths, twisting of scientific studies, and misreporting are running heavily rampant these days when it comes to e-cigarette research and usage. With recent reports, such as the one published by the New England Journal of Medicine that went viral through the media a few weeks back, followed by the state of California’s public health department running a statement that e-cigarettes should not be used due to their production of “chemicals” and that they can be viewed as a gateway to smoking tobacco, it seems that there is an unusual amount of negative information swirling, based on speculation, aimed at discouraging users from vaping.

What these reports fail to do, all the while playing up hype and sensation, is focus on the positives electronic cigarettes have accomplished in a short amount of time.

Smokers don’t turn to electronic smoking to gain a new habit. They do not enter the world of smoking as a result, either. They look to these products as a means of transitioning away from traditional cigarettes, as with vaping they have more control, more options, and can enjoy the experience of smoking without involving any tobacco.

“It is stunning that a public agency entrusted with the health of the population of California would promote such a one-sided, scientifically impoverished document” remarked Sally Satel, who disbunked much of the speculation and false reports in a piece for Forbes. Also noteworthy, is that even the newly appointed Surgeon General, Dr. Vivek Murthy has stated that there is a “desperate need for clarity” when it comes to electronic cigarettes. Obviously a blatantly negative, harmful label cannot be placed on e-cigarettes, so the media really needs to halt their efforts in doing so!

So, what is the deal? Why is the anti-smoking coalition so drastically anti-e-cigarette? Is it because electronic cigarettes make the idea of stopping tobacco usage too easy? Too simple? Too enjoyable? Is it the concept of an alternative, similar yet different, too hard to grasp because there should not be a pleasurable option? Whatever the reasoning may be, it’s time for these “public health experts” to take a hard look at the reality of e-cigarettes, and see the benefits right before their eyes. Instead of focusing on the idea of e-cigarettes being a scary endeavor out to tempt young people into the world of smoking cigarettes, they should be compounding their efforts into lobbying for e-cigarette regulations that guarantee product quality and purity. As this industry is in its infancy, only the future will tell, however one thing we are certain of, is that electronic cigarettes are not going anywhere!

Smoking and Oral Health: No Kissing Matter

tobacco and oral healthSmiles, eating, tasting, kissing, and talking: they are all reliant upon your mouth and your oral health. Poor oral health can contribute to all kinds of other bodily ailments, and having compromised oral health can certainly impede your ability to enjoy all the many things your mouth enables you to have. Imagine not being able to taste your favorite foods, or kiss your lover, or smile big and beautiful when the emotion takes you. Suffice it to say, you need your mouth, and you need it to be in good shape.

One of the best ways to disrupt the balance of health in your mouth is by smoking tobacco cigarettes. And yes, you’re probably fully aware that tobacco causes big trouble, but are you in the know of all the ways smoking is bad for your oral health?

If you smoke cigarettes, here is a breakdown of what you are playing with. While you may not have experienced any of these issues, just being a tobacco smoker puts you in contention for them! Want to steer clear? Drop the tobacco and switch to vaping; tobacco is not worth putting your mouth on!

Chronic Bad Breath

Smoking dries your mouth out, compounding the naturally found bacteria, enabling them to create a rather foul odor. Smoking also leaves behind disgusting particles, and they don’t smell good. Add in the fact that a vitamin C deficiency is a very common cause of bad breath, and nicotine has the known side effect of causing odors of the mouth. Smoking, very simply, and for a variety of reasons, can make your breath reek. No one wants to kiss a funky mouth.

Gums

Your gums are very susceptible to smoking damage. ‘White gums’ is among the most common issue, and this can be indicative of conditions as serious as oral cancer, gum recessions, and bone detachment.

Taste and Smell Loss

Loss of your sense of smell is one of the first things you lose when you start smoking. Next up is the loss of tasting, as the palate is closely connected to the sense of smell. Say bye-bye to your ability to taste deliciousness if you opt for tobacco. Interestingly, upon stopping their usage of tobacco products, users begin to realize how compromised their sense of taste has become!

Scary, right?! Makes you want to switch, ASAP, huh? Luckily, switching to vaping is super simple to do, and can offer a much more comfortable quality of life, without the tobacco exposure! Best place to start? An EverSmoke Starter Kit!
