“Restore our Planet” with AmCham Shanghai 8th annual E-waste Recycling Drive

On April 22, 2021, on the occasion of Earth Day, the annual e-waste recycling drive co-organized by AmCham Shanghai and Netspring Green IT Programs was successfully held. More than forty companies and individuals participated in the event, showing their enthusiasm for environment-friendly disposal of e-waste and the promotion of digital inclusion.

This year, the total number of items received increased again, by more than three times and the total weight was more than one ton, which reflects the increasing environmental impact we can generate all together.

Many of the items received can be recycled and reused. For example, when feasible, laptops can be refurbished and bestowed upon teachers in underprivileged schools for lesson preparation and digital teaching, improving teaching efficiency and quality. Likewise desktop computers can be refurbished to establish Green IT Classrooms for underprivileged schools in China.

We look forward to passing on the philanthropy and social responsibility demonstrated by all participants and would also like to thank the American Chamber of Shanghai for their long-term support of our work.

Companies that were not able to make it to this event and would still like to support us, can contact us or join our next e-waste drive! Many thanks to all on behalf of Netspring schools and students!
