14.5 mln plastic bottles and cans recycled by Sparklo in the UAE

by Madaline Dunn

AI-driven cleantech solutions provider Sparklo has shared that since its launch a little over a year ago, it has collected 14.5 million plastic bottles and aluminium cans, which it said is equivalent to saving more than 2,100 tons of CO2 emissions.

This was achieved through its installation of 170 Reverse Vending Machines (RVMs), called Sparklomats, across the UAE, in collaboration with Carrefour, Accor, and Dubai Municipality.

The company also shared that it now has over 110,000 users who have joined the Sparklo app in the UAE alone.

Each day, Sparklo collects more than 125,000 bottles and cans for recycling, equivalent to collecting 1.5 bottles per second and almost 2 per cent of all consumption in the country, it shared.

“We are thrilled to announce the remarkable impact Sparklo has made in the UAE since its launch,” commented Max Kaplevich, founder & CEO of Sparklo.

Adding: “Our results in the UAE tell us that our approach is effective – by motivating people to recycle with our rewards program, we address the root cause of global plastic pollution by changing people’s lifestyles. When individuals start collecting bottles for recycling and exchanging rewards, they become more conscious about waste disposal, leading to a significant reduction in plastic pollution. This achievement wouldn’t have been possible without the collaboration of our esteemed partners. Together, we are proud of the results achieved, underscoring our dedication to supporting local sustainability initiatives and contributing to a cleaner, greener future for the UAE.”
