2020 Global Recycling Day
Today is Global Recycling Day. A moment created to help recognize the critical role recycling plays in protecting natural resources and reducing our impact on climate change.
While your health and wellness is a top priority right now, we believe it’s important to also EDUCATE and TAKE ACTION during this season (especially with many of us finding a little extra free time at home).
Vital to the circular economy, recycling saves upwards of 700 million tons in CO2 emissions each year, and is clearly a front line in the war to save the future of our planet.
As positive as this eco-impact is, there’s also a powerful economic element. The recycling industry’s survival depends on demand for recycled materials. Unfortunately, without such demand, many facilities are facing closure, while hundreds were forced to shut in recent years.
Please continue recycling your waste, but also consider choosing products made from recycled materials which helps preserve the jobs of those doing this important work.
As a personal tech company, it’s our DUTY to advocate for both RECYCLED MATERIALS in new products & packaging, and increased E-WASTE RECYCLING efforts.
With that, we’d like to recognize one of the #RecyclingHeros working tirelessly on this front, Homeboy Electronics Recycling (homeboyrecycling.com). A social good enterprise, Homeboy offers certified, secure recycling and data destruction services to businesses, gov’t organizations and residents while providing permanent jobs for folks facing systemic barriers to employment.
Since 2018, we’ve partnered with this amazing team to shine light on e-waste, while providing a free, safe & easy way for our community to properly dispose of their old electronics. To learn more about the One-for-One Tech Recovery Project, please click here: gonimble.com/recycle
