Irving, Texas (PRWEB) September 26, 2011
eRecyclingCorps, a leader in transforming the global wireless ecosystem through rewarding, reusing and recycling, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as a 2011 GoingGreen Global 200 winner. Inclusion in the GoingGreen Global 200 signifies leadership and game-changing approaches through technology that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players.
eRecyclingCorps was selected for inclusion in this distinguished list by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe, based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.
One of only 10 companies selected within the Resource Recovery and Waste Management category, eRecyclingCorps and the other GoingGreen Global 200 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s GoingGreen Silicon Valley event on September 27th, 2011, at San Francisco City Hall in San Francisco, CA.
This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on the most promising emerging green technologies and new entrepreneurial opportunities.
“Picking this year’s GoingGreen Global 200 was a very competitive process, as literally dozens of great greentech companies are emerging out of the pack, raising big money, and gaining significant market traction,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor of AlwaysOn. “This year’s winners clearly represent some of the highest-growth opportunities we’ve seen in the private company marketplace and underscore that many of the greentech sectors VCs have been betting on are booming.”
The GoingGreen Global 200 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international greentech technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and greentech industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2011 list.
eRecyclingCorps was selected based on its breakthrough wireless device trade-in program that directly attacks the global issue of e-waste. Encompassing devices from all carriers, the eRecyclingCorps program provides an unmatched – and simple – opportunity for consumers to sell back their wireless devices for the maximum value. This solution reinforces customer loyalty for carriers and helps subsidize new devices, decreases e-waste, extends the life of wireless devices, and ultimately enables people with limited means around the world to access better technology at the best possible value.
A full list of all the GoingGreen Global 200 winners can be found at AlwaysOn GoingGreen Global 200.
“Since the founding of eRecyclingCorps, the entire team has been committed to partnering with our carriers and others in the wireless ecosystem to implement a sustainable process for reusing and recycling wireless devices,” said David Edmondson, the company’s chief executive officer. “We’ve made great strides and in just the past 18 months have been instrumental in processing more than 2 million trades for our carrier partner customers. This award is an honor, and continued validation of our work and mission.”
