In 2008, Bath Spa University worked with Green Standards to ethically dispose of over 8 tonnes of redundant furniture and electrical equipment.
5.5 tonnes were responsibly recycled, and 1.6 tonnes of equipment directly supported charitable and educational programmes around the world.
This film profiles just one such project:
"School in a Box - Romania"
Decommisioned computer equipment was sent to Romania to reduce the environmental impact and provide IT equipment for educational use.
The scheme is facilitated by Green Standards: http://www.greenstandards.tv/
