At the 2023 Vaper Expo UK on October 28, VPFIT noticed a disposable vape recycling charity organization called “GREEN WINGS PROJECT”. The organization says it is committed to using scientific and effective methods to harmlessly recycle disposable vaporizers. It currently has multiple sponsors, including e-cigarette brands, electronic cigarette companies and logistics companies. In addition, the organization also cooperates with some social organizations.
The staff of GREEN WINGS PROJECT at the exhibition told us that as a public welfare project, GREEN WINGS PROJECT recycles disposable electric cigarettes for free. According to reports, the current main brand sponsor of the organization is ELUX. In addition to e-cigarette brands, the organization also cooperates with local logistics companies in the UK.
The above-mentioned staff said that many environmental protection agencies now insist on a complete ban on disposable vapes. But just like the alcohol prohibition in the United States decades ago, alcohol prohibition cannot fundamentally solve the problem with just one ban. In the same way, for disposable electric cigarettes, recycling is the fundamental solution.
During 2020 to 2021, GREEN WINGS PROJECT began to realize that the sales of e-cigarettes is increasing. Because one of the founders of the organization previously worked in the logistics industry, and he wanted to use electronic cigarettes as an entry point to start a harmless recycling charity project. The organization currently focuses on e-cigarette recycling projects, and its largest and closest cooperative e-cigarette brand is ELUX.
According to reports, GREEN WINGS PROJECT currently has 6,000 recycling points and more than 10,000 recycling bins in the UK. In addition to brand logistics companies, stores and distributors also choose to cooperate with them because they can save recycling costs.
