Our project consists of regular publications, news conferences and social media content, among other activities, to ask those who possess e-waste to place them within authorized collection sites to prevent these type of waste reaching the environment to prevent emissions of POP. All the previous is done for a project coordinated by Mexican government authorities.

Description: In collaboration with Telefónica México, Movistar México and Reforestamos México A.C. we are realizing a national campaing named "Un Celular un árbol",  where for every collected and recycled smartphone, a tree will be planted on one of the famous flora and fauna protections areas of México, "El Nevado de Toluca". The goal is to plant 5250 trees  that will be cared by forestal community brigades for a span of 3 years.

The campaign seeks the companies and citizens to be aware of the necessity to be more sustainable, to make an appropriate management of e-waste, and fulfill the goal to reforest the equivalent of 15 soccer fields.

Besides that, we are launching a social media campaign to let people know about the International Ewaste day and how easy is to recycle their old electronics with our free collection program.
