Working with e-Scrap Destruction, 1-800-Flowers.com has initiated a computer equipment recycling program at its Long Island headquarters and is planning to roll out the program to all its brands and businesses throughout the US. In addition, on June 4, 2008, 1-800-Flowers.com will conduct a recycling drive at the company's retail store located at One Old Country Road in Carle Place, New York. Electronic waste recycling experts from e-Scrap Destruction will be onsite at the event to administer the collection of equipment. Chris McCann, president of 1-800-Flowers.com, said: "Protecting and preserving the environment is a vital responsibility shared by every business and by every private citizen. Our company is proud to be taking an active initiative, incorporating e-waste recycling into our own business practices as well as reaching out to the community and inviting people to join us at our store in Carle Place on June 4, 2008 to submit their used computer equipment and other electronic components for recycling."
