Points exchanged for coffee; lithium goes to Ukraine
For every e-cigarette they drop in the machine, a person receives bonus points. One can then exchange the points for coffee at Narvesen convenience stores or an OX Drive voucher for free Tesla car rides. Carguru offers a similar deal. Menjoks reveals that Wolt and Lulu Pizza will join as partners in January, so people will be able to redeem their points for food.
Wingo will donate the lithium recovered from the e-cigarettes deposited in Latvia to the Ukrainian army for the production of power banks. They will help Ukrainian soldiers in active combat zones to charge their communication devices.
When you sort e-cigarettes by throwing them into a collection machine, you earn digital points that can be redeemed for a rental car, free pizza or a coffee drink.
