Shout out to our GIN group called Project Planet! If you have e-waste to dispose, use their map to the nearest drop off point.
What is e-waste?
--> E-waste is popular, informal name for electronic products nearing the end of their "useful life." Computers, televisions, VCRs, stereos, co...piers, and fax machines are common electronic products. Many of these products can be reused, refurbished, or recycled.
Why we have to recycle/properly dispose of e-waste?
--> Electronic product contains many toxic chemicals such as lead and mercury. These e-waste normally go to developing countries. If there is improper disposal of the e-waste, local residents exposed to the release of toxins would suffer from various health problems.
-->E-waste in themselves contain various precious metals such as gold. According to the United Nations, the amount of precious metal in e-waste is many more times richer than the ores mined from the earth.
How to properly dispose your e-waste in countries like Vietnam?
--> Vietnam recycle is a free take-back program initiated by producers of electrical and electronic equipment for used or defective electronic products to ensure their safe and environmentally sound recycling.
--> They have various drop off points in Ho chi minh and Hanoi too.
--> Disposing your used or defective electronic products through Vietnam Recycles helps protect human health and the environment and conserves natural resources.
How is Australian International School trying to encourage proper disposal of e-waste
--> Drop your e-waste in the e-waste bin outside Mr Hoff's classroom (B211). From there, members of Project Planet will help deposit those e-waste to the one of the many Vietnam recycle bin.
The children in Primary and Kindergarten very kindly filled Tet boxes for children at the Little Hearts of Hope orphanage. We collected over 300 boxes from our Thao Dien and Thu Thiem campuses. This was a wonderful act of kindness. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Thank you Mr. James from ATS to come over and give us some insight and compare the pros and cons of studying in the US or finish IB at AIS. It's never been easy to study abroad without consideration for our children’s future.
