e-Cycle, the leading mobile buyback, data security and recycling company, is excited to announce our partnership with the St. Louis Cardinals to celebrate Earth Day and participate in the organization’s 4th annual Green Week. e-Cycle will be on-site collecting used cell phones at Busch Stadium April 26, 27 and 28, when the Cardinals play host to the Pittsburgh Pirates.
An e-Stewards certified recycler, e-Cycle provides the industry’s highest standards for the reuse and recycling of electronic devices and protecting private data. When fans turn in their used phones, e-Cycle will remove all sensitive data and recycle the devices.
All proceeds from the cell phones collected will go to Cardinals Care, the team’s nonprofit foundation dedicated to caring for kids. All donations will be processed through the e-Cycle Foundation, e-Cycle’s non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating charitable giving through revenues generated from mobile recycling programs.
To help encourage fan participation, e-Cycle’s Founder and CEO, Christopher Irion will throw the ceremonial first pitch at Saturday’s game.
“We consider it a tremendous honor to work with such a storied franchise as the St. Louis Cardinals,” Irion said. “The team’s commitment to green initiatives aligns with our goal of minimizing the amount of e-waste that accumulates from millions of discarded mobile devices.”
Irion added, “I’m working on my curve ball and am confident it will hit the strike zone.”
