ERP and Body & Soul raise awareness about vape waste

Artist bursary to create a sculpture that will be displayed at the upcoming festival..

We are delighted to announce that once again ERP Ireland is the Principal Circular Festival Partner of Body & Soul Festival, Ireland’s leading sustainable music festival.

As part of our collaboration, we have an artist bursary and are seeking to commission one artist to create a sculpture that will be displayed on site at the upcoming festival.

The focus of the piece will be to raise awareness about vape waste. As a form of ‘artivism’, the installation can do more than just entertain - it can significantly impact culture and society, and highlight the importance of the recycling of vapes and e-waste in general.

Recognising that vape waste often ends up in household or general waste, we want to generate awareness of the fact that ERP Ireland offers FREE recycling of these devices through their battery collection network.

As vaping user numbers increase, it is important to know how to dispose of used vapes responsibly. ERP Ireland offers FREE recycling of disposable, single-use, rechargeable vape and e-cigarette devices through our battery collection network.

Through this collaborative effort, we aim to make a significant impact on the proper disposal and recycling of vapes, thereby fostering a more circular future in the festival industry and beyond.

Based on our experience, ERP is well placed to support Body and Soul as Principal Circular Festival Partner and we look forward to working with them to help unlock innovative and sustainable solutions to promote vape recycling for Ireland’s leading circular festival.
