Now Accepting All Wireless Accessories

Eco-Train brings wireless accessory brands, distributors and retailers together to eliminate waste generated by the wireless industry.

The Government of Canada has confirmed that plastic pollution is everywhere in the environment, including on shorelines, in surface waters, sediment, soil, groundwater, indoor and outdoor air, drinking water, and food. The linear economic model of “take, make, use, waste” is no longer viable.

Here we are, heading into Year 3 of the Phone Case Recovery program. In year 1, Eco-Train had 3 brands, 1 distributor, and 280 retail locations working together to implement a more circular economy for the wireless industry. In year 2, the program grew considerably with 11 brands, 3 distributors and 650 retail locations all sharing the responsibility of cleaning up the mess. So far, Eco-Train and program partners have eliminated 63,480 lbs. of plastic waste. It’s a decent start, but we still have a long way to go. It’s going to take a lot more organizations, and consumers getting on board to make the dream of #WasteFreeFuture a reality!

This year Eco-Train aims to eliminate 1,000,000 lbs. of plastic and electronic waste from the wireless industry.
