Know Your Impact: How and Why Should You Recycle E-Waste

November 10, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

chispalogoPlease join us for this thoughtful and informative discussion on the growing problem of E-waste. This Food For Thought is hosted by Proyecto Chispa (Project Spark), a non-profit organization that collects and recycles unwanted electronics and uses the proceeds from reselling the parts to buy new computers for children in need. In addition, throughout November, you are invited to support Proyecto Chispa by bringing e-waste to any of our regular e-waste collection sites.

Create a spark! Donate unwanted electronics and help bring computers to kids in need. Proyecto Chispa (Project Spark) collects and recycles unwanted electronics for FREE and uses the proceeds from reselling the parts to buy NEW computers for children in need. We hope the new computers will be the “chispa” or spark kids need to continue learning and through education break the cycle of poverty. During the month of November,¬†clean out your junk drawer and drop off all your unwanted e-waste at the CIC collection sites. With your help Chispa is providing computers for a high school in Nepal that was devastated by the 2015 earthquake. Create a spark! Support Chispa! Proyecto Chispa is a registered 501c3 nonprofit and more information can be found at www.proyectochisparecycling.com
