Celebrate World Environment Day With An Eco-Friendly Vape

June 5th, 2016 is World Environment Day, an internationally-celebrated annual event run by the United Nations Environment Programme. This global campaign is designed to raise awareness, and motivate action, around issues that impact our environment on a local, national and world-wide scale.

Here at Highbrow Vapor, we're all about producing clean, satisfying e-liquids that provide adults with an alternative to smoking traditional tobacco-based products like cigarettes, and as a family-owned and managed business, we're dedicated to providing our future generations with a healthy, livable environment.

So, with World Environment Day just around the corner, we decided to take a closer look at the environmental impact of cigarettes, cigars and pipe tobacco, and how the production of 'traditional' smoking products impacts our natural resources such as drinking water, soil and air.

Sure, It's A Plant, But Is It Really All That Natural?

Tobacco advocates claim that since tobacco is an age-old plant that's been cultivated for centuries by indigenous peoples, it's obviously good for the environment.

Unfortunately, modern commercial tobacco production has very little in common with how folks grew the plant hundreds of years ago - in fact, tobacco farming is now considered by many to be one of the most destructive, and toxic, types of agriculture in the world today.

According to the World Health Organization, "in many tobacco growing countries, evidence indicates irreparable environmental damage from tobacco agriculture".

So, what's so bad about commercial tobacco production?

Tobacco is what's known as a mono-crop - that means that once a field is used to grow tobacco, no other crops will be planted there. This leads to serious soil damage because it depletes the ground of natural nutrients, creating an increased demand for artificial fertilizers to keep the crops growing. Many responsible farmers now practice crop rotation (planting a different crop each year) to protect the land, but in the high-stakes world of tobacco farming, profits always take precedence.

The other big deal with mono-cropping is that is leaves the plants vulnerable to attack by fungus and pests, requiring massive applications of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides - products that are known to "harm birds and other small animals," and even "known to cause ozone depletion".

Another big environmental concern linked with commercial tobacco production is the tremendous resources it takes to actually cure the tobacco for use in cigarettes. According to the World Health Organization, "in Southern Africa alone, an estimated 140,000 hectares of woodlands disappear annually into the fires necessary to cure tobacco, accounting for approximately 12% of deforestation in the region". Wow.

And that's not to mention the tremendous amount of waste produced by all those non-biodegradable cigarette butts that are littering our nations' parks, waterways and natural spaces....

So, this World Environment Day, you can feel good about choosing to ditch those dirty, environmentally-harmful cigarettes and enjoy a nice, litter-free vape!

Back Around Again

e cig juice vaping

What Used to Be Popular . . . Can Become Popular Once Again     Popularity can be a rather fickle thing. As a result, what used to be popular can become unpopular, much as how what has become unpopular can become popular once again. Here are some examples of trending items that are making a big comeback:

Movie Franchises

Whether it is because Hollywood is risk-averse or because Hollywood is responding to the nostalgia of their fans, a lot of movie franchises have seen revivals in recent years. For example, The Force Awakens brought back the Star Wars franchise in a big way, starring fresh faces while also bringing back some old favorites to reassure those who responded negatively to the prequels. However, it was far from being the sole franchise to be revived in recent years, not when everything from Jurassic Park and Mission Impossible to Terminator and Mad Max have received recent entries. Never mind other movie franchises that will be receiving the same treatment relatively soon, including but not limited to Ghostbusters, Top Gun, and even Conan. While many of these movies have managed to hold onto much of their original charm, they have also been updated for modern tastes, thus entrenching them in the imaginations of both the original fans and whole new generations of movie-goers.

Rubik's Cube

Although the Rubik's Cube reached the height of its popularity in the 1980s, it has seen surges time and time again, with recent times being one such example. After all, its colored blocks are as charming now as they were then, while its wonderful concept remains a fascinating challenge for those who love puzzles. As a result, it is no coincidence that there are all sorts of competitions involving all sorts of conditions, thus maximizing the appeal of the Rubik's Cube to the maximum number of people possible. Common examples range from the unsurprising such as solving the cube in the fewest possible moves to rarer and more unusual competitions such as solving the cube with one hand, solving the cube with one's feet, and even solving the cube while blindfolded, which sounds all but impossible.

Vinyl

The moment that compact discs hit the music market, consumer interest in vinyl fell like a stone in water. However, it is interesting to note that vinyl is starting to make a comeback with millions and millions of sale, which is rather curious considering that even compact discs have fallen out of favor in preference for digital storage as well as streaming music over the Internet. Some people suggest that this is because vinyl provides their owners with something tangible to hold onto, which can make for a refreshing contrast to the intangibility of its modern successors. However, whatever the reason, it is hard to doubt that vinyl is something that fell out of favor but has since started making a comeback, however limited it might be.

Contact Us

Even though e-cigs are still on an upward moving trend, the theory is they, too, will wane and taper and become less of a hot topic. But like all really good things, they'll be sure to come back around. For now, check out all our trending e-juice flavors and and enjoy some nostalgia.


Graduate Gift Giving

e cig juice vaping

Graduation is here, meaning that it is time to celebrate. Of course, there are a number of ways that you can express your happiness for the graduate in your life, but one of the best is presenting them with a graduation gift that has chosen for a perfect fit to their hobbies and interests. Naturally, since you know them so well, you should have no problems coming up with some graduation gift ideas on your own, but if you are still undecided, there is no shame in seeking out some inspiration as well.

4 Graduation Gift Ideas

Here are some graduation gift ideas:

  • Jewelry is a popular choice for graduation gifts, as shown by the existence of class rings as well as similar items. After all, not only is jewelry a lasting reminder of a joyous occasion, but it is also something that pleases the senses. However, if you are going to use jewelry, make sure to choose something that either symbolizes the occasion or has been customized to outright state it since that will make the connection between the two that much stronger.
  • Something simpler can suffice as well. For example, even something as simple as a customized mug can do a great deal to remind the graduate of the occasion, thus making their memories as fresh as possible for as long as possible. This is particularly true if you choose something that the graduate is more likely to use, with the perfect example being a customized coffee mug for someone who likes to savor their coffee in the morning.
  • What matters most is the feeling behind the graduation gift rather than the economic value of the graduation gift, so consider making something special for the graduate. For example, if you like to bake, now is the time to show off your baking skills by making something special for them to show your love and affection.
  • Of course, if you know that the graduate vapes now and then, you should consider getting one of our great e-liquid flavors. After all, we have a vast and wide-ranging selection that encompasses everything from fruits and desserts to more classical flavors such as cigar tobacco, meaning that we are sure to have something that appeals to them.

Leave Your Taxes Behind with a Good Vape

Now that tax day has come and gone, you may finally feel a sense of relief and freedom. After all, nothing feels better than being as far away from another interaction with the IRS as possible. However, you may wonder what you can do now that the dreaded April 15th has passed to celebrate and enjoy your life again. A good vape can help you to get over your taxes and enjoy your time. In fact, there are many ways that a good vape can make it so you can leave your taxes behind, at least for the time being. Get to know more about how a great vape will benefit you and those around you post-taxes.

A Good Vape Is The Perfect Gift For Your Hardworking Accountant

When you have relied on your accountant for months on end to protect your assets and help you get through the pain and drudgery that is tax season, you may want to get them a little gift to say thank you. A good vape can be just the ticket to do just that. The stress that your accountant is under to properly process your paperwork, find you the best possible deductions, and get you the highest refund possible can send them off in need of a nice vape experience.

Be sure to get them a few delicious vape flavors to choose from so that no matter what their mood, whether it be relief, worry, or some combination of the two, you have them covered at the end of tax season. Delicious vape flavors cannot be beat as the ultimate gift for your hardworking accountant.

Reward Yourself for Getting Done on Time

Getting your taxes done and submitted to the IRS on time is an achievement in and of itself. Whether you did your taxes yourself or you worked with an accountant, being on the ball and meeting your April deadline is enough for celebration. And even if you filed for an extension for some reason, you still got your request in on time and that is an achievement as well.

To celebrate, get yourself some great and delectable vape flavors. Instead of indulging in a decadent dessert full of calories, grab a vape with flavors like tiramisu, chocolate cake, or bourbon vanilla bean. Or if you prefer, you can get yourself something fruit flavored like pear, blueberry, or watermelon. A good vape is the gift that keeps on giving.

Use Your Refund to Create a Custom Vape Flavor

If you are really feeling good about the fact that you got a sizable refund from your tax return this year, you may want to treat yourself to what could possibly be the best vape of your life. You can now create customized vape flavors suited precisely to your tastes and specifications. If you have a specific flavor or combination of flavors in mind but have not been able to find it available in stores, you can create your own and enjoy the fruits of your tax filing labors.
