Robin Hood Initiative
With the Robin Hood Initiative, we aim to create partnerships with companies, so that their e-waste (IT technology) can be re-appropriated to projects and people who desperately need it.
Along the way we will keep the people who donate, updated with information about what they have given is changing lives for the better.
From an environmental point of view what we are offering is great, from a human interest angle, there is a feel good factor to what we are trying to achieve.
So if you are an IT manager, Marketing Manager or just concerned employee & you would like to help us make a difference, please get in touch.

Upgrade & Fix
As we have the skills to upgrade and fix the machines that we get in, we can of course offer that service to the general public. We are quick to reply with a quote and can offer many options to get your laptop, computer or phone back up and running or upgrading it to run better than ever.
With any laptop that is around 4 years or older, we can simply replace the existing SATA hard drive with a SSD (solid state drive). This change will revolutionize the way your machine will work and you will be amazed at the performance you will now get along with the time you will save.
With phones, most people put up with a broken screen or a poor performing battery for far too long, we can offer to fix these issues giving you back a properly functioning device which enhances your day to day living.
SSD vs SATA HDD
We are regularly communicating with with our partners who educate our next generation using,
The UN’s 17 goals for sustainable development.
Having adopted these goals as rules to follow in our business. We keep informed of schemes and projects that can be implemented anywhere in the world so that caring for our environment can be
at the forefront of our thoughts instead of in most cases, an afterthought.
Examples such as the way France has banned its supermarkets from throwing away
perfectly good food, has been followed by schools in Asia.
