The Ewaste Foundation’s aim is to decrease the e-waste problem in developing countries. We are a non-profit organization based in the Netherlands, though the scope of the Ewaste Foundation is global. Our donation partners, knowledge partners, and e-waste projects span the continents.
In short, we neutralize the fact that your used electronics, when given a “second life” in developing countries, will end up there as e-waste. By purchasing certificates and letting us address this problem, you take responsibility for this important aspect of the recycling chain.
We provide an e-Waste Certificate for the following groups of products:
