Hundreds of self-storage facilities throughout California are serving as GREENspot DROPoff e-waste recycling locations, and now these facilities will donate $1 to Kure It Cancer Research for every television, computer, monitor, laptop or flat screen they receive. Kure It has already received $2,000 from GREENspot participants.
Californians who wish to responsibly recycle their e-waste at any GREENspot location can simply write “KI” in the charity box on their donation form, and $1 per qualified item will go to Kure It and be used for research studies into the makeup of kidney and other orphan cancers.
“We want Californians to know that when they choose to recycle their electronics, they’re not only diverting waste from landfills, but also supporting great organizations like Kure It,” said GREENspot President Mike Wachtel.
GREENspot DROPoff is completely free. By working with storage facilities, the organization has simplified the act of cleaning the home or office of e-waste.
“We appreciate GREENspot’s commitment to making our world a better place, both by protecting the earth and supporting Kure It’s mission to find new treatments for cancer patients,” said Kure It Director Karen Jones.
Kure It is a non-profit organization whose mission is to raise money for research specialists conducting innovative projects to better treat and ultimately cure kidney and other cancers. Founded by Barry Hoeven after his diagnosis with kidney cancer, Kure It currently supports research being done at Cedars-Sinai and City of Hope.
