Global e-scrap dumping—it’s a serious environmental and public health issue. To help address this critical concern, Cisco hosts Recycle IT Day every year, and has done so since 2002. Around the world, Cisco locations act as collection points for employees to drop off e-scrap like end-of-life electronics from their home or work to be recycled by Cisco, free of charge.

We may not always remember to “stop and smell the roses,” but slowing down and appreciating the natural beauty all around us can serve as a reminder of lucky we are to call planet Earth our home. Last month, employees around the world came together to do just that; celebrating Earth Day throughout April as part of Cisco’s Earth Aware campaign.
Every April 22, Cisco joins the world in celebrating Earth Day, an annual event held in more than 193 countries each year. Historically, Cisco has used Earth Day to hold educational sessions for employees globally and virtual events around the clock, bringing speakers to discuss important issues and solutions that address environmental problems. In turn, employees are more aware than ever of Cisco’s efforts to improve environmental sustainability and make a positive impact on the planet.
