Nationwide E-Waste Drive!

Global Green is raising funds through a Planet Green e-waste drive!  Collect your small e-waste items and send them in (free of charge) to help the environment and Global Green.

Why is it important to recycle e-waste and keep it out of the land fill?  According to Allen Hershkowitz from the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), "The problem with e-waste is that it is the fastest-growing component of the municipal waste stream worldwide."


Hershkowitz says that "we throw out 130,000 computers every day in the United States" and over 100 million cell phones are thrown out every year.


Keep these solids and toxic chemicals out of the landfill and our environment by sending them to be recycled (or taking them to your nearest e-waste recycling location).


To send your small e-waste items to Planet Green and help raise money for Global Green and all of our great projects (like NOLA Wise!), visit the website for a pre-paid shipping label.  


For our beloved MLB teams, I think things like radar guns would count too!
