Save the Date: E-waste Drive in Beijing – Nov. 2nd, 2021 (Tuesday)


To echo 8th Franco-Chinese Month of the Environment, Netspring proposes to organize an e-waste recycling drive to reduce environmental pollution caused by e-waste and protect soil, plants, and water resources as well as human health. Netspring will recycle the collections and refurbish the reusable items to outfit Green IT classrooms in rural or migrant children schools throughout China, providing teachers with digital teaching equipment and bringing better educational resources to students or communities in need.

E-waste Drive Activity Details:
All the individuals and companies in Beijing are welcome to provide obsolete computers and electronics. Participants will receive a certificate of appreciation with their contributions. Netspring team will recycle the collections and refurbish the reusable items to outfit e-classrooms in rural or migrant schools throughout China as digital tools more than ever that are key to access learning for all. All electronic items collected will support the Netspring Green IT Programs.
Founded in 2012, NETSPRING is a pioneer social enterprise dedicated to transforming e-waste into e-education. Netsping has collaborated with the Mois franco-chinois de l’environnement for the past 3 years.
