E-Waste refers to electronics products that are unwanted, not working, or nearing the end of their usable life. These electronics can cause serious damage to the environment if disposed of in garbage dumps and landfills. At Croma, while we gained valuable expertise over the years in helping our customers buy electronics, we now aim to help our customers with the disposal of their old electronics as well. We have partnered with an industry-leading firm with expertise in e-waste disposal, JustDispose, to help ensure all e-waste is collected, transported, disposed and recycled in a safe, environment-friendly manner. In returns for the e-waste that you dispose of, Croma plants a tree in your name.
