It’s a fact: there’s a lot of pollution in the world. But what if doing your part to save the environment was just as easy as stepping out for the evening and joining a few friends for a drink? Would you do it?

What if all you had to do to help better the public school system was turn in all that old technology and gadgets you have piling up in the garage or under the bed? What if you didn’t even need to leave the house to recycle them? Would you do it?

Cleaning up the environment should be as much of a no-brainer as supporting local schools and as much fun as sharing a drink with friends. Cue Recycle-IT.

Recycle-IT: Mission Possible

Some of the most egregious pollutants come from old technology. From batteries to LCD screens, old tech gear releases high amounts of lead and mercury (among other toxins) over time. Even worse, it costs millions of dollars every year to barely dent the surface of curing the earth of these pollutants. We can solve this problem now and forever simply by recycling all our old technology.

That’s the mission behind Recycle-IT. The goal is to take the component parts of old technology and melt them down to be reused. And to top it off, they safely dispose of the portions they can’t re-use so we don’t have to worry about drinking the tap water. Recycle-IT offers in-home pick-ups for your old technology, coming to your door at your convenience.

It gets even better. Their campaign, which runs from January 11th to February 29th, to recycle old technology supports The Foundation for New Education Initiatives whose goal is to bring Miami-Dade schools into the 21st century. Any proceeds from donating old technology to Recycle-IT goes to the foundation. On top of that, the federal government has said it will match each dollar that Recycle-IT gives with ten of its own. TEN!

Celebrate, Raise Money and Recycle

Preemo is a proud partner of Recycle-IT, which is why we’re so excited about the big kick-off event we’re having tomorrow night at Town Kitchen and Bar at 6 PM. So, it’s true, you could save the environment, raise money for public schooling and all while partying with friends! We’ll also be raffling off prizes on Recycle-IT’s facebook page for those who donate during the campaign, so be sure to check in regularly and donate!
