Be the bridge to new opportunities for other people.
Extend the life cycle of your laptop and donate it to an organization. Become the supporter of a less privileged person out there. Put your old laptop to good use and be the reason that somebody can smile again.
Usually, the life circle of a laptop is seven to eight years. Extending the computer’s life through different types of reuse, it provides the highest environmental benefit of all electronics disposal alternatives.
Millions of computers and laptops are dumped every day in every corner of the planet. Unfortunately, informal processing of electronic waste in developing countries can cause serious health and pollution issues, to an extent beyond our understanding.
Every laptop dumped into a landfill represents a missed opportunity to provide technology and tools to individuals and organizations across the world.
You may find it easier to donate your digital equipment directly to your favorite local school. However, it is good to know that most schools have very specific technology needs. An over-the-7-years donated laptop might not be a good fit.
On the other hand, organizations that are ready to accept your laptop donation, most of the times, have a well-educated team ready to repair and upgrade older laptops. They will ensure that your laptop works well and runs legal software copies and that any e-waste is disposed of properly. They will pass on ready-to-use laptops to those who need them.
