Improper disposal of electronic waste is a problem that requires multiple solutions.
Electronic equipment contains toxic contaminants that can cause water and air pollution and are of particular concern when disposed of in landfills. Exposure to toxic metals found in these wastes can also cause serious health problems.
To help lessen the growing e-waste problem, Bidi Vapor initiated the BIDI® Cares program to offer adult consumers aged 21 years and over a way to recycle their used BIDI® Sticks.
Reduce your carbon footprint and be mindful of the products that you purchase. Learn about organizations close to you and volunteer if you can. Encouraging others to see the value and beauty of nature and its wildlife may be the most important way to help save it.
For mailing through the USPS, prepare your used BIDI® Sticks in batches of 20 sticks maximum per shipment. Between shipments, please store your empty BIDI® Sticks in a secure, room-temperature environment, out of the reach of people under the age of 21 and away from heat sources.
To properly participate in BIDI® Cares, you must use the United States Postal Service (USPS). To do so, first visit a USPS location or go online to usps.com and obtain a free Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box sized 8 ⅝ x 5 ⅜ x 1 ⅝. Once you have the box and complete the registration and/or shipping label step below, you must visit a USPS location in person to verify your age (21+) using a government-issued I.D. The USPS store clerk must check the I.D. before accepting the package for mailing.
Terms and Conditions:
Shipment must be in a cardboard shipping box. For USPS, it’s the Priority Mail Small Flat Rate Box, 8 5/8″ x 5 3/8″ x1 5/8″. Obtain this free box through the mail at http://store.usps.com or at a USPS location near you.
