Help preventing e-waste

Close the Gap created WorldLoop in order to set up an environmentally sound e-waste management system in emerging and developing countries.

In 2011, WorldLoop set up its first recycling centre in Kenya, where Close the Gap’s computers are recycled by local partners. This recycling facility is financed through a mechanism of e-Resource Certificates that are voluntarily purchased by sponsors in Europe. For each certificate bought by a European partner, one asset is collected and recycled in Africa.
