Blue Star is nominated for Social Impact Business of the Year at the first annual PRISM Awards in Colorado Springs. We are also a sponsor of the event – which is put on by the Better Business Bureau of Southern Colorado. We encourage everyone interested to turn out and support the social enterprise movement in Colorado Springs.
This week Blue Star crossed a milestone and hit 12 million pounds of e-waste that have been ethically recycled since our founding! That is the equivalent of 500 53′ semi-trailer loads of material! We couldn’t do it without all of our supporters who recycle with us. Thank you for helping us reach this achievement!
