Wish You Could Take a Bat to Your Computer?

September 14, 2018 • Charity Spotlight

On September 11, 2018, we hit the green at the Broadmoor Golf Course to promote the Power Up the Planet initiative with help from our friends at JLS Decals & Signs, RV City, and St. Albert Honda! While the day was rather cold, we managed to keep our spirits high. Mainly 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. While not everyone took a swing, our pile of smashed computers created inerest for Power Up the Planet.

Digital Link is taking these steps to reduce e-waste and the negative impact improperly recycled electronics have on our environment. Through the PUP initiative, we are able to recycle used and/or unwanted electronics properly by disposing them or refurbishing them. The electronics we are able to refurbish are donated to non-profit organizations and charities. We recycle all those not suitable for donation in a responsible, secure, and environmentally friendly manner.

Best of all, we 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. We managed to raise $50 for the BNI Foundation during the tournament, which we plan on doubling! On top of our $50, we will be donating $100 to the Foundation 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 JLS Decals & Signs, RV City, and St. Albert Honda, and thank you to BNI Alberta North for hosting the tournament!
