“When a product meets the end of its lifecycle, it doesn’t mean that there isn’t an extended need for it. Working with an organization like EALgreen, that product lifecycle extends and ultimately goes to help other people in a meaningful manner. It’s a warm and fuzzy feeling when we can say that our donation is helping to fund colleges and universities.”
