How an environment-friendly vaping initiative can help reduce the impact of used e-cigarettes


MELBOURNE, Fla.—It’s time to talk about the case of improper waste disposal especially in the vaping industry. Most companies don’t worry about what happens after their product is used, or if it presents a waste management issue. Vaping products, in particular, can present a challenge with used cartridges or disposables threatening to letter streets or take up space in landfills.

That doesn’t have to be the case. Implementing modern technology into premium vape products may open a path to sustainability when it comes to vape pen disposal.

With innovative solutions for e-waste management, BIDI™ Vapor finds a way to a more sustainable vaping scenario. The manufacturer of the BIDI® Stick is proud to present a recycling platform called the BIDI™ Cares program.

This initiative promotes sustainable vaping for adult vape users. With BIDI™ Cares’ campaign, “Save Your BIDI™ Stick, Save Our Planet,” every ten (10) empty and used BIDI™ Sticks sent back to our facility will give consumers 1 FREE BIDI™ Stick on their next purchase.

This initiative helps reduce the risk of residual nicotine, electronic waste, hazardous chemicals, and the unsafe disposal of batteries.

“Closing the loop” for e-waste in vape products should be the responsibility of both the consumer and the manufacturer, with the vaping company being responsible for providing an avenue to recycle their vape sticks and the consumer taking the initiative to participate.

 BIDI™ Cares does just that.

For the longest time, consumers have been criticized for using disposable vape pens and e-cigarettes because it can result in e-waste. However, part of the issue is that most vaping firms do not provide an option for their consumers to recycle.

Take the lithium-ion battery as an example. Even though 3 billion batteries are produced and sold annually in the U.S. alone, according to, few options exist for consumers to recycle them.

“Moving forward, BIDI™ Cares aims to be a game-changer in the modern vaping scene. We are continuously developing our product engineering and manufacturing processes to make sure that each BIDI® Stick produced is recyclable,” says Niraj Patel, president and CEO of BIDI™ Vapor, LLC, based in Melbourne, Fla.

BIDI™ Cares aims to close the loop, as a brand that displays innovation and environment-friendly initiatives through its BIDI™ Cares program. It is also encouraging more potential direct retailers and wholesaler partners to think about eco-friendly ways to do business in the industry.

As the manufacturer of the premium vape pen, the BIDI™ Stick, the brand practices responsible marketing strategies and looks for sustainable ways to offer a premium vaping experience.

It is their mission to ensure that adult smokers have access to an innovative and eco-friendly product. The company is equipped with a robust age-verification system so that only adults aged 21 and older can access the BIDI™ Stick and a recycling program for its used vape devices.
