Happy Earth Week! This week is an exciting week for us at SecondWave Recycling. We’ve got our month-long Earth Day collection campaign going on at the Seattle, Portland and the Bay Area WeWork locations; in addition we are hosting a pop-up cell phone repair shop at all three Seattle WeWork locations this week, as well as hosting a Lunch & Learn with 5Gyres to educate and promote awareness about the plastic pollution in the ocean.
It’s April and the countdown to Earth Day has begun! We’ve mentioned in the last post that SecondWave has joined forces with WeWork Seattle to collet old phone donations to help our friends at 5Gyres. We’re happy to announce that additional WeWork locations including Portland and San Francisco have joined our Earth Day campaign!
For this year’s Earth Day, SecondWave Recycling has partnered with WeWork, a cool co-working space where our new Seattle office is located! We will donate $1 for every phone collected during the month of April to our friends at 5Gyres, a community that fights plastic pollution in the ocean.
