[Update] It’s Time for Climate Week at Samsung 837 and Samsung 837X
The time has come to join Samsung in connecting, creating and combatting climate change!
At Samsung, we are working together to make everyday changes that have a meaningful impact on the environment. On average, we collect and recycle 100 million pounds of e-waste per year in the U.S. alone – and that is only 10% of what we collect and recycle globally. That’s like recycling the weight of five Eiffel Towers.
We see you doing your part to reduce waste and build a greener future, from upcycling, to composting food scraps, to carrying around your reusable water bottle. Now it’s time to not only celebrate these actions, but continue to fuel the movement that you’ve created.
Happening now from September 19th through September 25th, Samsung is bringing people together for Climate Week at Samsung 837, our flagship location in New York City, in the metaverse at Samsung 837X and on the Samsung US Discord server. To keep the sustainability celebration going, fans can show off their own upcycled styles for the chance to win awesome prizes with the TikTok #RecycleUp challenge through October 12th.
Visitors can join in a variety of ways for a weeklong immersive experience that celebrates everyday changes that have a meaningful impact. Check out a sneak peek of the upcoming events below.
