Built to Refurbish
Innovation is at the heart of what we do, and our new Type 2 plug embodies this. It's designed to be easily opened and repaired, promoting a longer lifespan for our EV Cables and significantly reducing electronic waste. This design reflects our ethos of sustainability and our commitment to challenging the throwaway culture often associated with electronics.
All you need to do now is maybe pop in your earphones, turn down the TV and take a bit of time out to have a read through the newsletter.
We will be posting this to our social media channels including Facebook, Twitter & Reddit (check out r/evcables subreddit). If you have access to our blog, you will get an extra item :)
Feedback, Requests, Questions?
As always, please give us feedback on Twitter. Which item is your favourite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Just send a tweet to @ev_cables and put #EVTuesdays at the end so we can find it.
