Computer Recycling For Education Launches Improvements To Its Electronics Waste (e-waste)- Consumer Education Program

Computer Recycling for Education today launched improvements to its national consumer education campaign to promote the proper disposal of unwanted and obsolete electronics in the home, business and government. The campaign features a cartoon elephant called Ewaste Eddie TM that proclaims, “Remember to Ecycle-it” TM.

“Consumers, business, and municipalities all of the United States now can find electronics waste recyclers, refurbishers, and nonprofits who can take their end-of-life (EOL) post-consumer electronics.” said President Al Chaney. The improvements include links to Earth 911, Electronics Industry Association (EIA) and the US Environmental Protection Agency. These three organizations have portals on their websites where a consumer, business or municipality can just input ones city, state or zip code and a list of companies or nonprofits closest to them where they can properly dispose of their electronics waste will appear. Most consumers, businesses and municipalities do not know whom to contact when they need to dispose of electronics waste. Computer Recycling For Education’s Electronics Waste Campaign helps to educate the public on where, and how to safely dispose of electronics waste (e-waste,e-scrap or e-surplus).

Improvements are also in the form of consumer public education. This summer a series for public education presentations will be available. Speaking engagements on the proper disposal of electronics waste are planned for schools, civic organizations, libraries, businesses and municipalities. Computer Recycling For Education has years of experience in the development of educational and training materials.    

“Consumers should practice proper disposal of computer monitors, computers, televisions, cell phones, video games, DVDs, VCRs and audio equipment when their electronics becomes unwanted or obsolete.” said Al Chaney. “Practicing proper disposal of an electronics item is the best way to ensure that harmful chemicals contained in electronics are not released into the environment through illegal disposal”.

The new public education campaign includes a public service announcement and informational materials for consumers, retailers, educators, recyclers, businesses, government, solid waste industries, and municipalities. Interested parties are encouraged to contact Computer Recycling For Education with suggestions on their electronics waste consumer awareness and education needs.

Rancho Murieta, CA (PRWEB) September 9, 2004 -- Computer Recycling For Education today launched a International Licensing product campaign to promote the licensing of their theme character Ewaste Eddie. The campaign features a cartoon elephant called Ewaste Eddie that proclaims, “Remember to Ecycle-it”

Ewaste Eddie will be advertised for licensing at the Toy & Game Inventors Forum (TGIF) to be held September 10-12 in Las Vegas, Nevada in Plaything’s 2004 Annual Inventors and Designers Guide. Manufacturers, designers, agents, representatives and licensees are encouraged to look for the Ewaste Eddie banner, and in the 2004 Inventors and Designers Guide which will be distributed at the convention forum.

Ewaste Eddie can be licensed for plush dolls, toys, board games, cartoons, apparel, posters, public service announcements, consumer education campaigns, environmental education, educational software, curriculum, theme parks, books, posters, and much more.

“Our goal is for Ewaste Eddie with his ‘Remember to Ecycle-it’ proclamation to become universally recognized as the world wide icon for electronics waste (ewaste) prevention. The US Forest Service has a famous fire prevention bear, and we plan to make Ewaste Eddie the spokesperson for educating the public on electronics waste (ewaste) prevention,” said President Al Chaney.

Just imagine a Ewaste Eddie plush doll, or Ewaste Eddie bobble head and flyer bundled with a new computer, cell phone, television, DVD player or any other piece of electronics sold. A national fast food chain could give a Ewaste Eddie bendable toy or antenna ball with their meals. On the back of Ewaste Eddie and on the flyer, would be websites and phone numbers where consumers, business and government agencies could contact for the safe and proper disposal of electronics waste (e-waste). Kids from 8- to-80 could be educated on ewaste and enjoy the Ewaste Eddie toy. Buyers of the electronics could have information at the time of purchase, where to properly and safely dispose of their electronics when they become unwanted or obsolete. This will help to protect the environment.

With Ewaste Eddie’s universal appeal, mass merchandise retailers, computer retailers, office supply retailers, electronics retailers, computer manufacturers, food processors, home improvement retailers, and electronics manufacturers are also encouraged to seek licensing. Licensing of Ewaste Eddie can also be applied to businesses, municipalities, colleges, school districts, recyclers, waste haulers, government agencies and environmental organizations. These organizations may want to consider the licensing of Ewaste Eddie for promotional items such as t-shirts, mugs, pencils, sweat shirts, calendars, posters, coloring books, and bill inserts for their own education campaigns. A variety of products can be designed to educate, entertain and to protect the environment through consumer awareness.

Ewaste Eddie’s copyrighted character, trademark and concept is receiving interest from a range of professionals from industry associations such as electronics and environmental.

Computer Recycling For Education, located in Rancho Murieta, California, owns and has created all of the intellectual property exclusive rights, licensing, trademarks, copyrights, artwork, designs, patents, illustrations, derivative rights and publishing rights.
