REVOLUTION STATE OF DISPOSABLE E-CIGARETTES
Disposable e-cigarettes are a revolution in helping millions of people quit smoking. Unfortunately, disposables are also the fastest moving consumer electronic device, with millions thrown away EVERY DAY as general waste.
The batteries in e-cigarettes are rechargeable and rated for hundreds of charges. Disposing them after a single use is extremely wasteful, particularly amid rising global demand for batteries. As electronic waste, ruptured batteries can also leak to pollute the soil or water sources. The demand for more batteries have also escalated mining for raw materials in poor countries in exploitative and terrible conditions.
As a global entity with a presence in over 50 countries worldwide, AIRSCREAM UK is committed to helping users quit smoking ethically while operating sustainably and responsibly.
Although some new e-cigarette designs are recyclable, there are no existing programmes to facilitate end-to-end recycling of such devices.
AWARD WINNING INNOVATION
ONE USE Eco’s innovative and pioneering design has not gone unnoticed. In 2023, it became our second device to win the Red Dot award for Product Design. ONE USE Eco is also a Gold Award winner of the 2023 French Design Award.
WORLD’S FIRST TRUE DISPOSABLE E-CIGARETTE RECYCLING SYSTEM
ONE USE Eco’s external shell is made entirely of recycled plastic, which can be turned into plastic pellets for reuse. The shell is intentionally made durable to reduce likelihood of damage to its precious internal components.
ONE USE Eco’s internal battery and sensor modules are housed in a separate module. The modules are recycled for use in other ONE USE Eco units.
ONE USE Eco relies on users returning used devices for recycling.
Users who return their ONE USE Eco devices enjoy attractive discounts off their next purchase.
This not only encourages a practice of recycling, but is win-win for everyone and the environment!
