“Change first begins with education and awareness,” stated Tony Wang, CEO of Re-Teck. “The gaming app makes players aware of the potential inside old electronics in a fun, interactive game. The launch events educate the community that there is a better way to discard used electronics as Re-Teck partners with schools, businesses and government facilities to collect and properly recycle the devices.”
Recycle Avengers, available for download in the Apple and Android stores, is an educational and interactive game that enables educators and parents to teach the importance of electronics recycling while simultaneously giving players the opportunity to win great prizes including gift cards, t-shirts, and posters. In 2023, a LEAF electric car will be given away to one lucky player.
