Pay it forward in the 21st century: Recycle your technology!
Having the hottest technology can make all the difference in your business.
But recycling your technology and using refurbished technology can change the world.
Recycling the technology you use, and using technology that has been recycled—or what is often called “refurbished,” meaning that it has been used and then reconditioned to be used again—can make the world a better, cleaner place.
But why is recycling so important?
Here are some facts to consider:
- “Without exception, recycling is the top action society can do to simultaneously improve: the environment, the economy, sustainable manufacturing and to prevent waste from going into oceans.
- When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will be the environmental and CO2 equivalent of removing 55 million cars from U.S. roads each year.
- When U.S. recycling levels reach 75% it will generate 1.5 million new jobs in the U.S. (net).
- Manufacturers truly want these materials back to reuse in their manufacturing, but they aren’t able to reuse the materials if people don’t recycle right.
- The nonprofit standardized label mission is the #1 solution to help society begin to recycle right and therefore, help recycling begin to thrive.”
Recycling really is one of the best ways that an individual, and an organization, can make a positive impact on the world. Waste is one of the biggest problems facing modern society, on a global scale, and even the very act of throwing something away uses up valuable resources that would make so much more sense going toward the process of recycling.
At the end of the day, recycling enables good things to keep happening.
Recycling has an impact on the environment and the people who live in it. One way technology can help good things happen is through recycling and refurbishing. From refurbished tablets that help a student take notes in their classes to a suite of refurbished desktop computers and monitors to keep business moving as usual, recycling makes a difference.
