Step 3 of Getting Green: Recycle Your Electronics!

November 19, 2008

November 19 2008 – Supply Brothers

In 2005, Americans threw out a record 5.5 billion pounds of electronics, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. What was the result of this? Millions of pounds of chemicals and heavy metals ended up in the ground! The average American doesn’t realize how easy it is to recycle.

The Consumer Electronics Organization created a special website to help people find a recycling center near where they live. The site also provides a list of electronics, from laptops, to baby monitors, that are easy on the environment and your energy bill. The website is called mygreenelectronics.org.

 

How to make money and help save the environment: The average American household has three used cell phones stashed away somewhere in their home. You can sell these unused phones to greenphone.com. You can expect to receive about $35, and the phones will be refurbished and sold.

 

When you are sitting around watching TV, just remember this. If just 1 million people recycle their old one cathode-ray tube TV this year, we’d keep 4 million pounds of lead out of the ground!

Sincerely,
Supply Brothers

November 4th, 2008 – Supply Brothers

 

In light of recent economic times, Supply Brothers, an Online Office Supply Retailer, announces its commitment to the American people. Starting November 4 till December 19, they will donate $1 for every order placed to a national food bank serving all 50 states.

“Recent economic times have not only been tough, they have been life changing for many Americans,” says Aaron Gerard, CEO.

For every order placed from November 4 through December 19, Supply Brothers will donate $1 to The Feeding of America Network (formerly known as America’s Second Harvest). Only $1 is needed to provide 16 meals for families in need!

The Feed America Network provides emergency food assistance to more than 25 million Americans facing hunger every year.

As the company strongly believes in supporting people in distress. They especially recognize the need to contribute, even as they face tough times themselves.

“As a small business, we are facing our own challenges in this very difficult climate. We have seen large price increases from our manufacturers over the past 2 years. Our company has not raised prices on our office supplies. This has been very difficult for us. However, we are still committed to our customers and our pledge to helping where we can. That is why we are creating this donation program,” says Gerard.

According to a recent NY Times article, “Food banks around the country are reporting critical shortages that have forced them to ration supplies, distribute staples usually reserved for disaster relief, and in some instances close.”

“We are happy to do what we can,” says Gerard.
