Toshiba America Business Solutions celebrates Earth Day 2023 by reforesting thousands of trees in ecologically sensitive areas worldwide while also eliminating tons of e-waste from filling open spaces.
Last year’s resulting efforts include replanting 26,134 trees and recycling about 59 tons of e-waste.
Since establishing the Toshiba Toner Recycling Programme in 2008, the company’s halted more than 1,733 tons of e-waste from hitting community landfills. This weight is equivalent to 48 New York City garbage trucks.
Collaborating with internationally recognised recycler Close the Loop, Toshiba’s EcoSmart Toner Recycling Programme representatives collect and send empty toner cartridges to Close the Loop’s zero-waste-to-landfill facility for materials recovery. After recycling, these materials return to the commodities market for reuse.
Since partnering with PrintReleaf in 2016, Toshiba is responsible for replanting 151,652 trees throughout the United States, Madagascar, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Ireland, Canada, France, Brazil, and India. Toshiba clients may choose their reforestation projects based on location, or even on the UN Sustainable Development Goals to which each project is connected.
“Toshiba has an ecological mindset when conducting business,” stated Toshiba America Business Solutions President and Chief Executive Officer Larry White. “Each day, we continually strive to function as sustainably as possible while also helping our clients and partners reduce their carbon footprints.”
