Sept. 2020: Happy Mid-Autumn Festival - Celebrating Teachers’ Day with PVH Green IT Opening & Service Day with Owens Corning Volunteers

Opening of a new PVH Green IT classroom near Shanghai
“This is the 2nd Green IT classroom sponsored by PVH cares in 2 years. It provides a platform that can connect our children to the world in a second. The future is a knowledge-based world, I hope this Green IT Classroom will provide students with a window which could help them discover the world. Moreover, I hope students know the importance of learning English and study hard from now on. Being multilingual and internet knowledgeable, in the future your world will go far beyond ours! Finally, I wish you can grow up healthily and joyfully. Also I would like to thank teachers who devote themselves 100% to the kids and their school. ”
Archie Leung, Senior Director, PVH China
On September 10th, 2020, Teachers’ Day, PVH Corp. inaugurated its 2nd Green IT Classroom to foster digital inclusion for migrant students in Jiangsu province. Archie Leung, Senior Director of PVH China and enthusiastic PVH volunteers attended the inauguration ceremony and interacted actively with students and teachers. To enrich the school's education resources, this program will provide 1500+ students of grades 3-6 with the opportunity to learn digital skills and bridge them to the information world and fulfil their dreams.
Volunteers from PVH taught one eco-friendly animation computer class and one handicraft class to the students who enjoyed them tremendously. Students presented their hand-made paintings to their beloved teachers and volunteers.
We wholeheartedly thank PVH for their dedication to Netspring’s children’s education.
“Opening a Green IT Classroom in our campus is significant to our school. As you bring us not only educational resources, but also spiritual inspiration. Warm care is also passed on to our hearts. The internet connects us to a broad world, information leads to better communication with each other.”
——Principal  Zhao of PVH Green IT Classroom


Owens Corning Service and Volunteer Day

The Owens Corning (OC) Global Finance Operations & Reporting (GFOR) Team volunteered around the world by giving back to their local communities in a variety of ways. Every year, OC employees devote thousands of hours of their time to address social needs by working side-by-side with their partners such as Netspring. 

On September 11th, 2020, by collaboration with Netspring, Owens Corning GFOR Shanghai finance team members participated in the global volunteering day with the purpose of making the world a better place, they hand-made blankets for underprivileged children in migrant school and wrote the wish cards for the children.

Carrying the full love of volunteers, Netspring team presented these warm blankets to a Netspring migrant school located in Jiangsu Province. The Principal was touched deeply and expressed: “These blankets will bring warmth to our kindergarten students in cold days, we are so grateful to Owens Corning’s volunteers and Netspring team who care about our children from your hearts, what a timely help!.”

More unwanted computers needed in light of increasing digital fracture

The pandemic has reinforced digital education inequalities worldwide whilst e-waste generation continues growing and we would like to thank JPMorgan for their recent generous contribution of re-usable IT equipment.
Did you know? A record 53.6 million tons of e-waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21% in just 5 years, according to the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor 2020.
The new report also predicts global e-waste -- discarded products with a battery or plug -- will reach 74 MT by 2030, almost a doubling of e-waste in just 16 years. This makes e-waste the world's fastest-growing domestic waste stream, fueled mainly by higher consumption rates of electric and electronic equipment, short life cycles, and few options for repair.
“Substantially greater efforts are urgently required to ensure smarter and more sustainable global production, consumption, and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment. This report contributes mightily to the sense of urgency in turning around this dangerous global pattern.” By David M. Malone, Rector United Nations University, From EurekAlert! news release on July 2, 2020
