Green Screen collects neglected technology, from iPads to Mp3 players, which is then refurbished and donated to the less fortunate and/or used to expand other Enactus OC programs. Green Screen reduces the amount of waste that enters our landfills and partners with a tech-recycling company to ensure any unusable technology is properly recycled.
For our trial program, Green Screen partnered with Kelowna Christian School. Over the course of a six to eight week period, the leadership group, with the direction and mentoring from Enactus Students, have collected neglected technology from the students from the KCS Middle and Elementary campuses. We plan to duplicate this process with other schools, to not only reuse and recycle more technology to donate to others, but also teach more students the importance of environmental sustainability.
During the course of our trial program, Green Screen collected 89 pieces of neglected technology. The technology collected is currently being refurbished and recycled. The refurbished technology will be donated to those in need or to our Enactus Programs such as Silver Surfers. The unusable technology will be properly recycled and the money received from recycling will be invested back into the program.
