Austin, TX June 27, 2009 -- Computer Recycling For Education® (CRFE) announced today it will promote its electronic waste (ewaste) awareness campaign with the appearance of its theme character, Ewaste Eddie®, during the African American Book Festival activities on June 27, 2009, at the Carver Library in Austin, TX.

“In 2007, Al Chaney, President and CEO of CRFE, moved his company from Sacramento, CA, to Austin, TX, 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 ewaste generated worldwide. We are very excited to have Ewaste Eddie make an appearance during the African American Book Festival activities in Austin as we continue to educate the public about the impact ewaste has on our environment.”

CRFE’s goal is to work with other organizations and businesses through its Ewaste Institute™, consulting services and trademark licensing opportunities to increase awareness of recycling 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 is 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.”
