eRecycling - PonyUp for Good
PonyUp for Good is a Social Enterprise that takes your company's donated, decommissioned technology - securely data erase it and on-sell, with a 'reuse first mandate'.
Devices are reused for up to another seven years, providing affordable, working technology to folk in developing countries, while keeping toxic chemicals out of soil & waterways.
The MAJOR KICKER - 50% of PonyUp's profits are donated to SecondBite, Australia's fresh food crusaders, who last year, rescued 11 million kilograms of fresh food and redistributed it to over 1300 food programs nationally. That's over 65,000 healthy meals a day.
What we have done with PonyUp for Good:
Landfill diversion - Our old technology collected by PonyUp has been reused and the remainder has been recycled.
Meals for Australians in need - the re-marketing of this equipment has also generated meals to SecondBite! (www.secondbite.org)
We work with our customers to recycle through PonyUp whenever they are doing a hardware refresh.
