Recycling on Earth Day 2009

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

This earth day in 2009 marks the will mark the beginning of The Green Generation CampaignTM which will also be the focus of the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2010. With negotiations for a new global climate agreement coming up in December, Earth Day 2009 must be a day of action and civic participation, to defend The Green Generation™’s core principles: Family with windmills: Renewable energy for future generations.

  • A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.
  • A global recognition of water bottle plastic recycling standards.
  • Standards in which consumers will have an outlet to recycle common items that are a part of their life, like cell phones and iPods with charities like Recycling for Charities.

  • An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
  • Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.

Under the umbrella of The Green GenerationTM, thousands of events are currently being planned in schools, communities, villages, towns and cities around the world. As in 2008, on April 19th Earth Day Network will celebrate Earth Day on the National Mall in Washington, DC, plus large-scale volunteer events in New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, Atlanta, and DC in partnership with Green Apple Festival . We want to make Earth Day a time for meaningful change, so sign up to restore and give back to the community! And after you’re done giving back, celebrate with a free “thank you” concert for all our volunteers!

Our partners in Cleveland, Columbus, Tokyo, Buenos Aires, Beijing, and Manila, among others, are planning large events where everyone can participate. Recycling for Charities will have a recycling drive ongoing on their website where consumers can donate and receive a tax deduction. We will also be apart of Royal Oak, MI Earth Weekend event April 24th on Main St.

Recycling Cell Phones

Helping to preserve the environment for the generations of the future is an important responsibility for which everyone should be held accountable. The electronic waste from pagers, cell phones, PDAs and digital cameras continues to increase each day, and this waste poses a serious threat to the environment. Unfortunately, until recently, legitimate wireless recycling programs have been few and far between.

Where RFC Helps
Recycling for Charities is a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that allows individuals an opportunity to recycle cellular phones, PDAs, Palm Pilots, digital cameras, and iPods for value that is then donated to the charity of their choice. Not only is RFC acting as a medium to raise funds for charities, but the organization helps individuals protect the environment as well.

For each wireless electronic donation provided, RFC contributes a minimum of one dollar to the foundation or cause selected by the donor*. (learn more about donations) Recycling is beneficial for charities, the environment, and is also tax-deductible! When you make a wireless donation, everyone benefits!
