Sacramento, Calif. (PRWEB) April 22, 2006
“Ecycle-it”® theme created by Computer Recycling For Education® featuring Ewaste Eddie has become the newest eBay® Rethink Initiative member applying some fresh thinking to the problem of e-waste in San Jose, California.
The “Ecycle-it” theme features Ewaste Eddie's proclamation: "Remember to Ecycle-it" will join eBay’s Rethink Initiative which brings together industry, government and environmental groups to offer fresh new perspectives and new solutions to the challenges of e-waste. Some of the leading proponents of eBay’s Rethink Initiative in the consumer electronics industry are; Apple, Best Buy, Consumer Electronics Association, Circuit City, Dell, Earth 911, EPA, Gateway, Goodwill, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, March of Dimes, Motorola, National Cristina Foundation, Nokia, Toshiba, USPS, UPS and Verizon Wireless.
“Ewaste Eddie was created to partner with and help consumer electronics manufacturers, electronics retailers, business, municipalities, government agencies, educational institutions, environmental groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), local jurisdictions, waste haulers, e-waste recyclers, and nonprofits to inform the public on ewaste awareness through outreach and education,” said Al Chaney, President/CEO of Computer Recycling For Education, a retired solid waste specialist formally with the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA). “Ewaste Eddie’s was also created to change consumer behavior through social marketing to increase electronics reuse, reduce ewaste, recycle electronics and to buy electronics with recycled components through public awareness and education.”
“We at Computer Recycling For Education are excited to become a Rethink member in time for Earth Day 2006, and are honored to be recognized for contributions in helping solve the e-waste problem and to be acknowledged along with consumer electronics industry leaders,” said Chaney.
The 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). We plan to make Ewaste Eddie the spokesperson for educating the public on electronics waste (ewaste) prevention. The goal is to have every electronics item feature an Ewaste Eddie “Ecycle-it” label or sticker on it through a licensing agreement.
