December 21, 2007, Newsletter Issue #93: Help Bridge the Digital Divide

Tip of the Week

As more companies, organizations, and individuals find reasons to upgrade their computer equipment, the responsibly to dispose of old equipment grows.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, 250 million computers will become obsolete in the next five years. As of 2001, only 11 percent of personal computers retired in the U.S. were recycled. Not only is this filling landfills with non-biodegradable plastics, metals and toxins, such waste is a missed opportunity to provide technology and tools to people across the digital divide.
