As a newly married couple looking for furniture at an auction, Angie and her husband stumbled upon a way to support themselves and help the environment. After purchasing an entire office-worth’s of used electronics on a whim, Angie began an eco-friendly business that diverts electronic waste from landfills by recycling and refurbishing used electronic across the U.S.
Founded on Earth Day in 2008, eWaste Direct is now a full-time sustainable business with global reach. Self-proclaimed “eco-preneurs,” Angie and her husband are doing their part to help future generations. Over the course of nine years, eWaste Direct has diverted over 7 million pounds of e-waste from landfills and has gone from a revenue ratio of 80% recycling to over 80% resale.
