On September 11, 2018, we hit the green at the Broadmoor Golf Course to promote the Power Up the Planet initiative alongside our friends at Digital Link! While the day was rather cold, we managed to keep our spirits high by watching golfers take a bat to old, worn out electronics we’ve collected through PUP.
BNI Alberta North graciously hosted their annual Golf Classic Tournament providing members with the opportunity to network throughout different chapters, while raising money for charity. Roughly 124 golfers stopped by Hole 12, and while not all took a swing at the old electronics, many were interested in the Power Up the Planet initiative.
For those who aren’t aware of what Power Up the Planet is, it is an initiative to reduce e-waste and the negative impact improperly recycled electronics have on the environment. Through the PUP initiative, Digital Link is able to recycle used and/or unwanted electronics properly by disposing them or refurbishing them. The electronics that can be refurbished are donated to non-profit organizations and charities, while those not suitable for donation are recycled in a responsible, secure, and environmentally friendly manner.
Best of all, Digital Link will pick up your unwanted and ready to be recycled electronics free of charge.
We’d like to thank BNI Alberta North for providing us with this opportunity to reach out to their members and inform them of the Power Up the Planet initiative. We are extremely pleased with the interest everyone showed and managed to raise $50 for the BNI Foundation during the tournament to help support teachers and education.
Once again, thank you to everyone who braved the chilly weather and showed interest in the Power Up the Planet initiative, thank you to Digital Link, and thank you to BNI Alberta North for hosting the tournament!
