“In 2007, Al Chaney, President/CEO of CRFE, moved his company from Sacramento, CA, to Austin bringing with him his environmental green elephant, Ewaste Eddie,” Linda Moyé, Vice President for Marketing and Communications explained. “CRFE is committed to addressing the significant increase in electronics waste or ewaste generated worldwide.”

“We recognize that the phenomenal growth of social networks as a marketing tool shouldn’t be overlooked in today’s business climate,” Mr. Chaney said. “As Computer Recycling For Education continues to grow, we want to take a full advantage of this technology to reach the masses with its ewaste licensing campaign.”

CRFE’s goal is to work with electronics and computer manufacturers and retailers, waste haulers, recyclers and refurbishers, government agencies and environmental organizations to increase awareness of ewaste and proper disposal options of electronic equipment. As the ambassador of CRFE, Ewaste Eddie promotes education and action toward ewaste prevention, electronics reuse and computer recycling. He is trademarked in print form as a cartoon icon and as a full-size costume character.

Mr. Chaney added, “Ewaste Eddie has begun to make a positive impact. He’s appeared at a number of national conventions including the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and the National Education Association Convention (NEA). He’s also featured on the Ebay Rethink website. Soon, Ewaste Eddie with his “Remember to Ecycle-it” proclamation will be recognized as the universal icon for ewaste awareness and prevention.”

Ewaste Eddie is available to travel to educate and entertain at your business, recycling event, college, school, corporate venue, theme park, zoo, library, sports event, environmental campaign, and much more!!!
