Danish tech company AIAIAI have just announced their latest initiative; Remixed, a program which creates a circular economy for their TMA-2 headphones. Continuing their company focus on supporting sustainability and reducing e-waste, the new system allows users to trade in used headphones and parts for discounts on new or refurbished products. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, electronic waste is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the world and AIAIAI is part of the movement to change the future of music.
Combating the millions of tons of e-waste generated each year, this new system will allow customers to ensure that old headphones and other music hardware stays away from landfills. With quality being assured by AIAIAI engineers, all products being traded in will undergo a full inspection and refurbishments will be given the same love that built them the first time around.
