Environmental responsibility is fundamental to YouRenew's mission of simplifying electronics reuse and recycling. Consistent with this tenet, we ensure that all devices we receive either find a new home, or are responsibly recycled by an audited, R2 certified electronics recycler.
In addition to our zero landfill policy, as a green business we constantly strive to minimize our own carbon footprint. For every device recycled through our website, we make a matching donation to Carbonfund.org. Recognized by Treehugger as a Best of Green 2011 & 2010 award winner, Carbonfund.org supports a variety of carbon offset projects ranging in category from renewable energy to reforestation. To learn more about CarbonFund.org's supported causes please feel free to visit them at www.carbonfund.org.
We all know that reuse is the highest form of recycling. YouRenew is accordingly committed to salvaging as many devices for reuse as possible. As a testament to our efforts, in 2011 YouRenew was able to achieve a reuse rate of over 85% of all devices received throughout the year.
