The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has launched a new campaign to encourage Americans to reuse or recycle their used electronics. Panasonic has joined The Plug-In to eCycling Campaign as one of nine "Leader Level" corporate partners.
As a Leader Level partner, Panasonic will work with the EPA to help underwrite the costs associated with up to 175-200 of Agency-led and other electronics collection events nationwide during 2003. Panasonic also will provide advertising and promotion support toward the Plug-In to eCycling campaign.
"We are pleased to work with the EPA in support of the Plug-In to eCycling campaign," commented David Thompson, Director of Panasonic's Corporate Environmental Department. "This program provides a great opportunity for company's like Panasonic to help develop the recycling infrastructure in the U.S. It also helps to promote the "shared responsibility" concept in addressing the issue of electronics products at their end of life."
A schedule of collection events will be posted below upon event confirmation.
