How did this record attempt come about?

A few months ago, we received an interesting request from Jens Demol, a domino fanatic from Kuurne, in our mailbox:

"Do you want to collaborate on a world record for dominoes? But not just with dominoes, with LAPTOPS!"

 

Our interest was piqued immediately. With Out of Use, we are specialised in the reuse and recycling of these devices, which made us the ideal organiser.

 

The world record is currently held by multinational and laptop manufacturer Lenovo. In 2018, they toppled 520 laptops. As an SME from Limburg, we want to do much better. :) 

Natuurpunt as charity

Per laptop, Natuurpunt can plant 2 m2 of woodland in Flanders.

 

If we can drop 700 laptops, this will yield 1400m2 of extra forest soil in Flanders.
