Disposable e-cigarettes have taken the e-cigarette market and vape industry by storm due to their ease of use, convenience and maintenance-free nature. There is no doubt that disposable e-cigarettes are the best product to quit smoking with but they come at a cost - they are the worst product for the planet!
Most of the industry aren’t aware of the detrimental environmental impact disposables have on the environment on landfill, hazardous waste and carbon emission. Even when the devices are recycled they just end up in landfill as they’re not designed to be recycled and need to be dismantled into different components in order to be recycled correctly.
Introducing the New QBAR by Riot
We’ve kick-started the new year with a new sustainable disposable e-cigarette, unlike anything that’s been seen before - a game changer within the vaping industry.
Carbon Negative Disposable E-Cigarette
The new QBAR by Riot is the world’s first carbon negative disposable e-cigarette that is fully recyclable, made from bioplastics (75% less carbon-intensive and no fossil fuels) with all parts of the device recycled separately including battery, casing and mouthpiece. As part of our new Riot Recycle Scheme, we have come up with a recycling program where devices are deposited in recycling locations. Riot Recycle Electric vehicles will collect and then recycle all elements of the device.
Ben Johnson, founder of Riot Labs said:
“2022 marks a major moment in Riot Labs’ journey. The launch of QBAR, our first venture into disposables, and our new brand campaign, is all geared up to changing the status quo on smoking cessation, and continue to deliver on our mission to help people quit smoking.”
QBAR is unique to the industry because it is the first carbon-negative and fully recyclable disposable, but it also has many other benefits including:
- 550 Puffs
- Made from PLA Plastic (cornstarch)
- 420 MAH A* Battery
- UK Made Flavours
- Sweetened by Stevia
- Fully Recyclable Device
- Fuelled by Award-Winning Riot E-Liquid
- Part of Riot Initiative
- Ease of Use
10 Flavours in 3 Nicotine Strengths
QBAR comes in three options of nicotine strength (20mg, 10mg, and 0mg) to best suit the needs of the user, so whether they’re a heavy ex-smoker, moderate smoker or someone that wants to reduce their nicotine intake completely with a 0mg - the choice is theirs.
There is a range of carefully selected 10 award-winning flavours including; Triple Mint, Sweet Strawberry, Cherry Fizz, Blue Burst, Mango Peach & Pineapple, Grape Ice, Classic Tobacco, Strawberry & Blueberry Ice, Menthol Ice and Watermelon Ice.
The Riot Recycle Scheme
The Riot Recycle Scheme is the first UK disposable vape recycling scheme. The scheme brings together Riot with major retailers, waste management companies and recyclers with the shared aim of increasing the number of disposable e-cigarettes recycled in the UK.
The Riot Sustainability Promise
We have promised that for every gram of carbon used in production, we will offset double the amount of carbon through tree planting and direct carbon capture. To help the community, we will also be donating a percentage of our profit to charities within the UK and abroad.
This new sustainable disposable is a crucial milestone to tackling smoking cessation, but Riot isn't stopping there! 2022 will be the beginning of a new era at Riot with huge sustainability projects coming up. We are determined to make a positive change in the world with the environment, sustainability and green technology at the heart of everything we do - quitting with purpose.
