MYLE Vape Committed to Reducing Waste Footprint by 75% by 2024
(Ridgefield, NJ) - For immediate release. MYLE Vape, a global brand consumers have come to know and trust, is one of the few vape brands that is addressing the growing concern over disposable vape product waste and implementing the 4 R’s into their corporate mandate by 2024: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rethink - the goal of taking a step towards consumer education regarding waste reduction in the vape industry.
MYLE is committed to responsible stewardship when it comes to vape device waste management and to this end is committed to reducing waste footprint by 75% by the end of 2024.
MYLE is leaning forward into the vape waste issue by embracing the Extended Producer Responsibility model. Under such a model, a deposit for each pod or device is charged to consumers at time of purchase which is then credited back when that pod or device is returned upon the end of its usable life. This model has been adopted by many well know consumer goods brands who sell recyclable bottles or containers.
The issue in waste disposal is not necessarily the vape pen, it lies in the lithium-ion battery. Proper disposal of an e-cigarette requires removing the filler material, rinsing it under running water until all nicotine residues are removed, and then wrapping it in a scrap of biodegradable material. The cartridge itself should be similarly rinsed and then sealed with its original plug. “Only then can it all be discarded as you would any other plastic waste. The lithium-ion battery must be disposed of at a hazardous waste disposal facility, which in some cases is hard or inconvenient to find in smaller rural communities.
“MYLE is a global brand that is committed to protecting the environment through recycling programs that allow for easy and safe disposal of all parts and components of our devices. Sustainability and waste reduction is now a focal point for the MYLE brand.” Ariel Gorelik, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer.
