The Upcycle program is run by Causes International, a green cause company committed to environmental stewardship and charitable giving. Upcycling creates funding for non-profits and charities by extending the life cycle of donated consumer and corporate IT electronics. The process is safe, secure, and guarantees 100% data destruction while preventing items from going into landfills, poisoning the planet and all that inhabit it.
