About Netspring Programs:
A Pioneer social enterprise in China
NETSPRING Is a pioneer social enterprise in China created in 2012 upon the following findings:
• Computers and other electronic equipment become obsolete more and more quickly, as market trends are endlessly changing. In China, at least 5 million computers are discarded and turned into e-waste every year. Over 70% of them are collected by illegal recycling vendors, dismantled and even burned in a very rough way. Such practice causes massive toxic chemical release, heavily polluting the air, the water and the soil, and is harmful to human health.
• However, parts of such obsolete computers are still in good working conditions and could be reused after appropriate repair. At the same time, more than 50 million Chinese students in under-developed rural area have no access to computers and the internet. They are striving to learn more and widen their horizon.
With its Green IT Classroom program, NETSPRING addresses those 2 issues, developing recycling economy to create shared value between developed and under-developed Chinese areas.
As an early promoter of the 3R (Reuse, Recycle, Reduce) principles in China, NETSPRING is thrilled to announce that the launch of innovative program - Green 3R Box, for drop-offs of unwanted electronic items such as computers, mobiles or batteries. Netspring Green 3R Box aims to promote natural and sustainable concept, and create environmental and social impacts.
