In 2022 Urbanears have taken the first steps on its journey towards a better sounding future (with many more steps still to be taken, we know). This is what has been done so far:
1. We work hard to make our products last longer and only design products that people love to use. Our newest products, Boo and Boo Tip come with eco-charging — a technology that prolongs the lifetime of the battery.
2. We’ve figured out that most people have at least one charging cable hanging around their house and more than half of people we asked said they do not need another one. So in 2022 we decided to stop including charging cables in the headphone box. This small change has cut the carbon footprint of Boo and Boo Tip by an estimated 3%! Don’t worry, if you need one, all you have to do is ask.
3. We are registered at local authorities and member of designated take-back collection system in applicable EU member states (WEEE). The fees paid cover the costs for collection, treatment and reuse or disposal of the product, battery and packaging in an environmentally sound way.
