Friday, April 28 marked Fazendin Realtor’s first annual Earth Day event. This year we hosted a Technology Recycling event. We lucked out and landed a gorgeous spring day to host;. one of the few sunny days of this spring. Here at Fazendin we are always conscious of our carbon footprint. We were thrilled to host such an eco-friendly event for our clients and community; and our planet 😉. According to the EPA, electronic products are made from valuable resources and materials, including metals, plastics, and glass, all of which require energy to mine and manufacture. Donating or recycling consumer electronics conserves our natural resources and avoids air and water pollution, as well as greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by manufacturing virgin materials.
Over 80 clients and Fazendin agents and staff took advantage of our event. We are proud to say that at our event, 453 LBS of Desktop/Laptop computers, 945 LBS of Recyclable electronics, 571 LBS of CRT TV’s/Monitor, 1,422 LBS of Printers and 2,214 LBS of E-Waste were recycled. That’s over 2.5 Tons of waste that won’t end up in landfills!
Thanks to all who took the time to clean out, load up and drop off. We don’t know about you but our shelves look a bit lighter this week and just a bit less dusty. And thank you to our partner in this event, Tech Dump. They are a wonderful organization to team up with if you are planning an event or just have a few items to recycle!
