Going Green Tip of the Week and GMO Food Awareness with Giveaway.

Going Green Tip of the Week is "ecycling".

A wonderful new trend in recycling is "ecycling".  This is where you reuse and recycle old electronics.  Today, our world relies on so many plugged in items.  I think about the items I use throughout the day. My iPhone, iPad, computer, coffee pot, oven, stereo, TV, and I am sure I am missing a few more.  When things start to not work well or just up and die on us, we can do more than just through it in the trash.  The EPA said "More than 2 million tons of used electronics are disposed of each year".

What can be ecycled?
TVs, computers, monitors, cell phones, keyboards, printers, hard drives, software, stereos, DVD players, scanners, digital equipment, VCR, cords, wires, plugs, and so much more.

What companies take your ecycled?
Best Buy, Apple, Office Depot, Philips, Sony, JVC, Panasonic, Sharp, Epsom, AT&T, Intel, Dell, Lexmark, Samsung, Staple, and HP.

Where can you drop off your ecycle donations?  We have dropped off at Best Buy and Goodwill, who will come and pick up your items.

Looking for ecycling sites in your area?
Earth 911  .
The electronic Industries Alliance

Why do this one extra step?  Recycling or reusing old electronics recovers valuable materials that can be made to make new ones.  This cuts down on needing raw materials which saves resources.   Ecycling also protects the environment by keeping lead and mercury from harming people and the land.

Don't forget about your military. Before you ecycle your phone, there are drops off locations to donate your old cell phones to our soldiers on the front lines, to call home to family.

Next time you go to throw away something electronic please try to ecycle!
