Increase the recycling rate
In South Africa, only 1 in 10 handset is properly recycled. One of the reasons is a lack of (m)eWaste collection points, especially in the less affluent communities on the Cape Flats. By increasing the recycling rate, we prevent damage to the environment and people in our communities.
We've partnered with local repair stores to host (m)eWaste collection boxes in various communities, allowing our members conveniently recycle their (m)eWaste and get [me]Credits. These repair stores also use our collection boxes to recycle their (m)eWaste responsibly. These small steps create BIG changes!
