Last week, I went to see a movie. During the previews there was advertisement that made me so happy. The first scene of the ad had someone holding a computer, I can’t remember now if it was a man, a women or a child but each scene had someone desperately trying to hand off their computer to someone else. Turns out that in May 2009, Best Buy rolled out their Green Together program. Their slogan, ” Regardless of where you bought it, what brand it is, or how old it is: bring it to us. We’ll make sure it’s properly and safely recycled.” The best part, it’s FREE! There are a few items that folks have to pay $10 for but in exchange they receive a $10 Best Buy gift card. Also there is a two item per day maximum and there are some items they don’t take like console televisions or televisions larger than 32 inches, so it is best to check you local store before bringing in your items. Even though the program has been running for a year, I hadn’t heard about it and wanted to share.
Way to go, Best Buy!
