Go Green and Go Free: E-Waste Provides Complimentary Admission to Green Living Show
Samsung Electronics provides free admission to Green Living Show visitors that bring e-waste to event
TORONTO, April 5 /CNW/ - Got an old TV or computer monitor lying around at home? If so, look no further. Head down to Toronto's Green Living Show between April 15 - 17 at the Direct Energy Centre at Toronto's Exhibition Place and receive complimentary admittance on behalf of Samsung Electronics Canada, one of the show's presenting sponsors.
A long-time supporter of green initiatives, Samsung's involvement in e-waste management is part of the company's ongoing commitment to providing Canadians with sustainable and eco-friendly options in the disposal of electronic items that they no longer need.
"For the past two years, Samsung has stepped up to the plate to provide an incentive for Canadians to dispose of their electronic items in an eco-friendly manner that is safe for the environment," said Matt Weiner, Marketing Manager, Samsung Electronics Canada. "This year's Green Living Show is a great opportunity to both consider the message behind the show and promote a more sustainable way of living through safer electronics disposal."
E-waste brought in by visitors to the Green Living how will be recycled at one of Samsung's Recycling Direct™ depots located throughout Canada and facilitated by Global Electric Electronic Processing (GEEP). GEEP collects e-waste and recycles it in the most ecologically responsible manner, foregoing incineration, solid waste landfills or the exporting of toxic waste to developing countries.
"Samsung is thrilled to be able to continue the drive towards a safer and healthier environment," said Matt Weiner. "E-waste disposal is just one way that many of us can do our part in reducing the electronic items that are bound for landfills."
For the fifth year in a row, The Green Living Show will allow visitors to stroll through the 80,000 square feet of exhibit space and visit over 400 "green screened" exhibitors and feature attractions, including an exciting array of speakers on the Main Stage.
