Last week, we hosted a Green IT Earth Day event at our offices. The event was in celebration of Earth Day and we partnered with Premier Surplus of Cumming to collect e-waste for recycling. We grilled hotdogs and brats. Everyone who brought something to recycle received a green, reusable, insulated grocery tote.
For the final count, we collected 3,131 pounds of e-waste. That’s a ton and a half kept out of landfills and all proceeds will go to the Norcross Cluster School Partnership. It was a great time and so successful that we are doing another recycle event on July 2nd during our annual 4th of July Cookout .
Earth Day is an annual day on which events are held worldwide to increase awareness and appreciation of the Earth’s natural environment. Earth Day is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network and is celebrated in more than 175 countries every year.
