This will be accompanied with communications materials with the objective of educating and generating awareness around the importance of recycling electrical and electronic equipment. The action will go on during October.  Also, we encouraged our partners in retail to produce and share communications around the E-Waste Day on their stores, social media and apps.  We will also launch a movement called Eletrônico Não é Lixo (translation: Electronic is not waste) to generate awareness among the general public. We will send press kits to journalists and influencers on E-Waste Day with the objective of explaining what the e-waste is and how to properly discard them. Also, we will launch a website dedicated to the movement, a manifest video and the production of an e-book about the e-waste.
