Get involved! Turn your old computer or mobile phone into a stretch of forest
Scarcely 1-2% of mobile phones are currently recycled or reused, and for IT equipment it’s only 48%. On behalf of companies that hand in their electronic waste, Out of Use donates a piece of land to Natuurpunt, where trees are planted. Participating businesses and organisations receive a certificate and can even go and plant the trees themselves.
For every PC, laptop or server, Natuurpunt buys 2 m² of forest land to plant trees. But even 4 smartphones/mobile phones, tablets or hard drives are enough for 1 m² of newly planted forest land in Flanders.
You’ll find more details in the information document.
So far more than 120 businesses and organisations have already taken part, and more than 14 000 m2 of woodland has been planted. We hope to create many more new woodlands where endangered species such as the great spotted woodpecker, squirrels and pine marten can flourish. But to do that we really need your help!
So let us have your details and plant some trees with your company!
