Toshiba Celebrates Sustainability with Recycling & Reforesting Efforts

Good News Notes:

“Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to a more sustainable earth, Toshiba America Business Solutions announces its recycling of nearly 187 U.S. tons of e-waste – from spent toner consumables – and replanting of 37,083 trees in 2019.”

“Since 2008, Toshiba has eliminated about 1,542 tons of e-waste from entering landfills via the company’s EcoSmart Toner Recycling Program and by partnering with an internationally-recognized recycler,  Close the Loop. This weight is equivalent to 15,474 average-sized (199.3 pounds) National Hockey League players1.

Upon partnering with PrintReleaf in 2016, Toshiba has replanted 78,459 trees across global reforestation projects in Madagascar, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Ireland, United States, Brazil and India. Toshiba customers choose the planting location based on recommendations of the World Resources Institute’s Global Forest Watch initiative.”
