EARTH DAY IS SATURDAY APRIL 22!

EARTH DAY IS SATURDAY APRIL 22!

CRRC happenings: Thursday April 20th you can visit our booth at the ASUO U of O Earth Day Fair - EMU Amphitheatre 13th and University 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM. Come down and hang out with Luna, our Yorkie mascot! Friday April 21, and Saturday April 22 100% Day! National PC Round Up. Help support COMPUTER REUSE AND RECYCLING CENTER and Computer Reuse and Recycling Coalition by donating your obsolete electronic equipment. For Earth Day, there will be a national effort to collect the 100,000 PCs that are taken out of service EVERY day. Our organization will then refurbish or recycle your donation in order to protect our environment, protect your information and bridge the digital divide in our community. "Computer Industry Almanac" reports that Americans are now using more than 230 million personal computers, with the average PC used by its original purchaser for 4 1/2 years. That means on average well over 100,000 PCs are taken out of service every day in the United States. If we refurbish just 10 % of these PCs, we could provide more than 3 1/2 million computers for schools and low income families and eliminate the digital divide by the end of the decade. Results of this national roundup effort will be announced on Monday, April 24th, 2006. As part of our efforts, we will be collecting obsolete electronics from Weyerhaeuser sites, Invitrogen, Golden Temple and other local businesses. You can participate by bringing your donation to our site at 222 Polk Street Eugene, OR.                                             Saturday April 22 The 36th anniversary of Earth Day will be celebrated at the Eugene Water & Electric Board waterfront plaza. CRRC will have a booth. Come on down and join us! Earth Day is both a celebration of conservation successes and a call to action. It was designed to educate people about the largest environmental issues of our time. In Eugene, this year's Earth Day focus is ''Sustainability: Food for Thought."
