Orlando, Florida; Seattle, Washington. September 19, 2017. The electronics recycling and refurbishment certification program known as e-Stewards® today announced a new “digital equity” program designed to channel computer equipment from large corporations and institutions to needy individuals and communities across North America.

Despite the fact that education, jobs, job access, and emergency services depend heavily on the internet and computing equipment, 1 in 5 persons in the United States today still have no access to the internet. Meanwhile, every year, thousands of working computers, printers and peripherals are removed from service and are shredded, or worse, exported to dirty recycling operations in developing countries.

Protect Your Right to Informed Purchasing

The well-regarded and popular program, EPEAT, is facing an uncertain future due to legislation that could render it obsolete. Help protect this program so sustainable electronics can be easily identified for purchase and recycled at end-of-life.

Environment and Seahawks Win Big

The Seahawks and environment both won big the past month–the Seahawks won the Super Bowl and the NFL, who partnered with Broadway Green Alliance, Verizon and AnythingIT, prevented over 9,000 pounds of e-waste from being landfilled or worse.
