Easypack Employees with dignitaries and children from Shraddhanand Anathalaya.
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.
Advancement and rapid innovations in technology, falling prices of available technology, and planned obsolescence of outdated electronics have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe.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.
