What is Promise it?
Promise it to Rehab Recycle is about encouraging companies to pass on their out-of-date and unused computer and other electrical equipment to those who need it most so that we can extend its life and get further use from it.
- Did you know that one in four people living in Ireland has never logged onto the internet? By making a Promise to Rehab Recycle, you will be helping to narrow the digital divide by making low or zero cost computers available to local schools, charities, community groups and start-up enterprises. That’s after it has gone through a comprehensive certified data cleaning and refurbishment process of course.
- Did you know that 70 per cent of the overall toxic waste found in landfills is electronic waste? When placed in landfills, hazardous materials like lead and mercury can contaminate soil as well as drinking water. Reuse consumes 100 per cent less energy and raw materials than manufacturing, while recycling consumes 90 per cent less and provides all of us with a more sustainable future. By pledging your out-of-date and unused equipment to Rehab Recycle, you will be helping to conserve resources with less need to extract more from the earth, and helping to safeguard the environment due to less pollution caused. And that’s really good for your carbon footprint.
- Did you know that people with disabilities are two-and-a-half times more likely to be unemployed than those without a disability? Rehab Recycle is a social enterprise that provides sustainable employment to 138 people, 85 of whom have a disability, supporting them in maximising their skills and talents and living their lives to the full. By entering into this commitment, you will be helping disabled people to build long and satisfying careers with Rehab Recycle.
You will also be gaining good PR for your business in showing your company as a good corporate citizen, increasing your brand value and reputation and, in today’s economic environment, we need all the competitive advantage we can get. Your customers will appreciate the fact that your company is doing its bit for the wider community helping to keep them and attract new clients, while staff will also appreciate the feelgood factor.
So what more reasons do you need? Making a Promise is simple. It’s up to you to tell us when you are ready to fulfil your Promise to us. And don’t worry – we make it easy – we collect, we remove your data, we refurbish and we pass it on to worthy beneficiaries.
