The environmental effect
The number one reason why anyone should choose to partner up with us and adopt a 'RePower Box' is the direct effect that it will have on the environment. By participating in our initiative you will not only assist with a responsible method of e-waste collection, but you will raise awareness on the matter and educate others to do the same. Help us 'RePower the Future' and leave behind a healthier planet for the generations to come.
Give back to your community and to the causes you believe in
The 'RePower' program is not only designed to give the community a safe zero-cost option for e-waste management, but it is also aimed at sharing the value of the collected items. All the e-waste collected through the 'RePower Boxes' is processed by recycling and market re-entry (functional / fixable items). A set fraction of this generated value will be given back to the participating institution or a desired organization. This means that part of the proceeds could go to supporting local education funds, local organizations, or any other cause that the participating member deems appropriate (charity, medical research, phylanthropic causes).
Become a community leader
Wether you are an educator, a small-business owner, a corporate executive, an organziation representative, or simply a concerned citizen you can become an environmentaly aware leader in your community. We are interested in working with all parties that are as enthusiastic about reducing electronic waste as we are. Get involved with the 'RePower' project and bring our zero-cost service to your schools, business locations, shopping, fittnes, and enetertainment centers, local events, and anywhere else people could benefit from it. Contact us and we will work with you in finding the best solution for your needs.
Raise awareness and educate
The simple fact of adopting a 'RePower Box' raises awareness on the principle of 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle' for all the people that see the bins. Even for those which do not take immediate action and bring in their old cell phones and small electronics the message has been communicated. This will raise awareness and encite them to become more educated. Our 'RePower Boxes' promote this message even if not used directly as collection bins.
