Who are Spring?

Spring is a green mission-led start-up with a team of 40+ talented people.

Our mission is to change the way we all use technology, as everyday thousands of forgotten tech devices waste potential, lose value and add pressure on the planet. The world currently generates 50 million tonnes of e-waste every year and that figure is set to double by 2050.

We;re challenging customer buying behaviours, encouraging people to give tech a new life while saving the environment by reducing e-waste going into landfills and the CO2 emissions. You can now easily trade in your old tech, through our self-service machines (Pods) and our reusable postal pouches, Spring Post.

We have already gained some serious Series A private equity funding and secured contracts with national retailers, Morrisons & Co-Op.

We have an exciting year ahead, with nation-wide take over on the horizon and several key products launching, such as our own ecommerce store. Come and join our vibrant and passionate team who are looking to transform the world of consumer electronics!
