LONDON, THE UK, APRIL 21, 2023 - This #EarthDay2023, SocialBox.Biz Community Interest Company and its partners are celebrating with handovers of old no longer needed but still usable laptops that have been wiped clean, upgraded and loaded with open source software innovation.
The re-use and donation of this tech is a great solution for companies and organisations looking to reduce their carbon footprint and find a true net zero tech solutions. Recycling is not a true net zero tech technique, but reuse donations are a better solution for the environment. Plus, these donations make a major impact in the lives of the less fortunate.
Refugees, the elderly, and the homeless all benefit from donations received by SocialBox.Biz. These donated laptops help those in need connect with educational and career opportunities while also giving them a platform by which to communicate with friends and loved ones.
These donations could not be possible without the SocialBox.Biz business heroes, which include educational organisations and other companies who donate outdated tech.
As they move towards Earth Day 2023, SocialBox.Biz and its Charity partners are gearing up for donated and upgraded laptop handovers. SocialBox.Biz has also announced that its team looks to add IT internships and provide IT training. This will help to increase the volume of old but usable tech via the SocialBox.Biz scholarship program.
SocialBox.Biz has recently released a number of initiatives aimed at increasing donations given and collected while reaching even more people in need. At SocialBox.Biz, the goal is to provide opportunities for companies and organisations to meet impact objectives while giving back to those in need. For #EarthDay2023, SocialBox.Biz looks forward to reaching more people than ever.
SocialBox.Biz team commented:
’’Importantly, this does not affect recycling contracts as items can still be sent for recycling that needed recycling and still usable items donated to our initiative once we’ve removed any usable items. Upcycling, by reusing and donating to those who cannot afford a
computer, is a far more environmentally friendly solution than selling old computers for recycling to scrap companies. Giving someone a free laptop may not seem like much, but for many people it gives them hope and is an important stepping stone into society.”
