Samsung has been working closely with the Plug-In To eCycling program, which promotes and fosters opportunities for people to donate or recycle their used electronics and replace them with new environmentally-friendly models. Samsung says its Recycling Direct program has recycled over 16 million lbs of old electronics to date and just recently added 62 new fixed drop-off locations bringing the current total to over 260 places where you can easily recycle your electronics.
“We appreciate Samsung’s enthusiastic support of our Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR campaign,” said Jill Vohr, Marketing Manager for the US EPA. “By taking the ENERGY STAR Pledge, each of us can sign up to take action against global warming by using energy more efficiently.”
Samsung’s new partnership with the EPA will help the company attain the goals it set in its EcoManagement 2013 initiative. The company also declared its carbon neutral presence at CES.
