On March 22, AmCham Shanghai is kicking off its 2019 Charity Month with our annual e-waste recycling drive with Netspring Green IT Programs.
AmCham Shanghai's 2019 Charity Month (from March 22 to April 22) provides an opportunity to give back to the community. It will conclude with the 2019 AmCham Ball on April 27. Proceeds from the ball will be donated to this year's NGO beneficiaries. Please visit our website for more information on the 2019 AmCham Ball and the NGO beneficiaries and how you can contribute.
Any members and non-members are welcome to drop off their used or unwanted electronics and parts on Friday, March 22 between 1:30 pm-4:30 pm at the AmCham Shanghai Conference Center. Contributors will receive a certificate of appreciation on-site with their contributions. Netspring will recycle the collections and refurbish the reusable items to outfit e-classrooms in rural or migrant schools throughout China.
Netspring now recycles obsolete computers/office equipment in other Chinese cities besides Shanghai. For more information, please contact them at email@example.com. All electronic items collected will support the Netspring Green IT Classrooms Program. Netspring will manage the sorting and refurbishment of reusable computers to set up Green IT classrooms for underprivileged children in China. Any unusable items will be disposed in an environmental-friendly way.
During the past 6 years collaborating with AmCham Shanghai and other sponsors, Netspring has raised awareness about the environment and given better quality education to more than 40,000 children by providing them with access to digital technology.
