On Earth Day April 22nd, 2015, Network Essentials partnered with Greentek Recycling Solutions to raise funds for The Lunch Project, a non-profit organization in Charlotte that strives to raise money for the purpose of supporting school lunch programs – further empowering communities in Tanzania while also offering an Education Program to Charlotte-area schools and community groups.
The Lunch Project aims to ensure school lunch programs are available so children have a hot lunch to provide additional incentive for attendance and to keep them productive throughout the school day. In an effort to help out, we started collecting old computer and electronics equipment on Earth Day and we raised 5000 pounds of equipment resulting in donations for each and every pound! This is a win in multiple facets. We help you responsibly remove your old equipment in a very eco-responsible way (this equipment does not belong in landfills!) while reutilizing the separated materials and in turn donating the value of the scrap components to a great local and international cause.
