Green Initiatives's WE Project 

Launched in May 2016 by Green Initiatives in close collaboration with Netspring, a pioneering social enterprise focused on e-waste reduction and IT education for the lesser privileged, the [WE] Project aims to provide the local community in Shanghai with a transparent, systematic and environmentally-friendly way to dispose off unwanted and broken electronic products. This process reduces the number of items that are buried in landfills or incinerated, with the additional benefit of preventing toxins that damage our health from being released into the air, water, and soil. 

The need to reduce e-waste is urgent and individuals and organizations can make an immediate impact.

Give your used electronics a safe home!
