Bringing Members to Action

October 25, 2014

Changing people’s habits

Recycling requires a little discipline – especially when it’s not a habit. More and more families and businesses are starting to recycle paper and plastics, and that’s good news. Many cities have started recycling programs to make recycling easier. However, a lot of e-waste is still going into landfills, which isn’t good.

An idea everyone can get behind

Many people know it’s a bad idea to send old electronics to landfills. Electronic products are full of toxic, dangerous chemicals, and it’s no surprise that these toxins quickly make their way into the soil, water and air if e-waste isn’t handled responsibly. While many individuals find the e-waste crisis concerning, most just don’t know what to do with their old cellphones, inkjet and toner cartridges, laptops, and gadgets.

By becoming one of our EnviroPartners, organizations have the chance to help save the planet. However, helping with our e-waste recycling efforts also helps organizations earn some awesome rewards in the process.

Of course, fundraising also takes some hard work. We don’t mind the work though, and we’ve done all we can to make it easier for organizations, charities and schools. We help organizations learn great ways to get their Planet Green Recycle program rolling. A couple methods that can be used with great results include:

Get the word out

Organizations can’t collect much e-waste if no-one knows about the program. We’ll provide information on ways to spread the word among friends, family and the local community. We have many tools and techniques that will help, and this video offers information on how to use them.

Encourage people to take action. Knowing isn’t enough. Organizations must be able to inspire the community to get active. This video also teaches organizations how to encourage people to participate in the e-waste recycling program.

Getting people involved in e-waste recycling isn’t difficult. Traditional fundraisers usually involve selling items most people don’t need, such as candy or cookies. However, everyone needs e-waste recycling. Once people realize the importance of e-waste recycling, it’s very easy to get them on board with the program. No one wants to pollute our soil, air, and water. Through our program, organizations can offer a simple solution – and it doesn’t cost people anything to get involved.

Start raising funds for your cause!
