From our Equipment Buy Back Program, to our E-waste Recycling Day programs, ServerMonkey is taking a leading role in the fight against e-waste.
HOUSTON, TEXAS (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
ServerMonkey today announced that it has become an “e-Stewards Enterprise.”
In doing so, ServerMonkey commits to pursuing the most responsible recycling practices for its electronic waste (e-waste).
“ServerMonkey is dedicated to conducting business in a green and sustainable manner, and as an e-Stewards Enterprise, we reinforce our commitment to properly and safely disposing of all e-waste,” said Craig Simons, Chief Sustainability Officer of ServerMonkey. “From our Equipment Buy Back Program, to our E-waste Recycling Day programs, ServerMonkey is taking a leading role in the fight against e-waste.”
E-waste is the fastest growing part of the U.S. garbage stream. According to Time Magazine, Americans throw out more than 350,000 cell phones and 130,000 computers every day. Improperly disposed of, the lead, mercury and other toxic materials inside e-waste can leak from landfills and pollute communities.
“At this pivotal moment in the worldwide e-waste crisis, ServerMonkey joins a growing number of business, academic and governmental leaders taking action to stem a toxic tide,” said Jim Puckett, Executive Director of the Basel Action Network, creator of the e-Stewards program.
As an e-Stewards Enterprise, ServerMonkey agrees to always make best efforts to work with e-Stewards Recyclers, ensuring that ServerMonkey’s e-waste does not contribute to the global toxic waste crisis. E-Stewards Recyclers undergo a professional audit every year to guarantee they do not export hazardous recycling byproducts to developing countries, use U.S. prison labor, or dump in municipal landfills. E-Stewards recyclers also ensure that private data is kept secure, and that their operations protect both workers and the environment everywhere.
