Taking forward our commitment to ensure an eco friendly sustenance of our business, Easypack recently gave away a large amount of e-waste for environment friendly recycling. In Nagpur, we are the first company to give e-waste for environment friendly recycling. The e-waste was gathered over a period of time and given in bulk to EcocentricTM, a Mumbai-based company specializing in ecofriendly E-recycling.
Easypack gave away a large number of electronic waste goods such as motherboards, mobiles, keyboards and other computer accessories. The waste was collected by a company representative from Easypack’s premises and taken to an eco friendly recycling unit.

2. If disposed improperly, they are a source of toxins and carcinogens (cancer causing agents).
3. Improper disposition causes tremendous hazards to bio-environment in terms of air pollution and land pollution.
What can be given for e-recycling?
Some examples of items that can be given for e-recycling:
1. Computer Monitor
7. Mobile handsets & chargers
11. Tubes& bulbs
And any other goods that use electricity for functioning.
In today’s world , it is imperative to have substantial exposure to computer technology , if one aims for a better future. With this view, Easypack recently donated seven sets of computers to Shradhanand Anathalaya , Nagpur.
The aim of this donation was to provide an opportunity to the orphans, to get introduced to computers . The initiative was well supported by the staff of the orphanage. The childeren were very excited to see the computers.This donation has allowed Easypack to make a fraction of contribution towards bridging the digital divide in the society. Easypack firmnly believe that if these children are ever to have a chance, an opportunity to change their destiny though education, then they must have access to technology.
It is a matter of pride for us to announce that this computer donation program has had a wonderful start, and we look forward to sharing many more such initiatives as they occur.
Easypack celebrated 15th Annual Day on 1st May 2013. It was organised at Sai Sabha Gruha , Nagpur. A wide array of cultural programs were organised on this occassion. The programs comprised of dance performances, drama, solo and group singing performances.
Employees wholeheartedly participated in the event and put in their hard work and dedication to make this event a grand success. It has been a tradition at Easypack to honor and felicitate our long term employees for their commitment towards the organisation. This year too we are proud to announce that a total of 44 employees were honored for their long service. Outstanding performers and employees who have completed five and ten years in the company were felicitated by Director, Mr. Arun Saxena.
Advancement and rapid innovations in technology, falling prices of available technology, and planned obsolescence of outdated electronics have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe. As per a report by UNEP, India is estimated to increase the amount of e-waste produced, by almost 500%, over the next decade. This alarming increase will result in significant deterioration of human health & environment.
As part of our philosophy to ensure that our business thrives in a safe and healthy environment, we have teamed up with EcoCentric, a e-recycling company based in Mumbai, that offers electronic waste recycling solutions to responsible companies who want to discard their ‘E-waste’ in an eco-friendly manner.
We are proud to be the first company in Nagpur, to be associated with EcoCentric. Through this association, we plan to start the process of making the surrounding corporate and domestic sectors aware of the hazards of e-waste and at the same time provide them solution and guidance to dispose off their e-waste in a safe and environment friendly manner.
As part of our undertaking to promote and propagate this healthy practice, we encourage all the corporate and domestic sectors in Nagpur to channelize the disposition of their e-waste through us.
