Donating goods is always a smart thing to do. But did you ever consider donating your old tech equipment? Here’s a distressing fact: about 14 million tonnes of tech gets thrown away each year. That’s a hell of a lot of resources for those who need it most, especially when it comes to finding job/education opportunities and connecting with one another.
RL Solutions, TechToronto.org and Free Geek Toronto are encouraging everyone to take part in this special holiday #DonateTech drive. All week long, you can drop of your old or unused tech equipment (e.g., laptops, phones, cords, VCRs, DVD players) and help bridge the gap between those who have access to tech and those who don’t.
The drive will be setting up at Mars Discovery District tomorrow. Check out our IG today to get a behind-the-scenes look at the story.
#DonateTech supports Free Geek Toronto, a social enterprise focused on refurbishing computers for the community and ethically recycling electronic waste.
