Sustainable Technology Commitment

FreeSource is committed to repurposing discarded technology for the benefit of others. In our rapidly-evolving technologically-oriented society, e-waste is a big problem, as are human rights abuses perpetrated in pursuit of the rare earth minerals that serve as the basis of our technological infrastructure.

FreeSource strives to use only discarded and refurbished/repurposed technology in all of our activities whenever possible, not only as an ethical choice, but as a practical one that will allow us to ensure technological accessibility to all of our volunteers and program participants on an extremely minuscule budget. We do this also as an attempt to encourage people to look past superficial notions of obsolescence and what constitutes usefulness.
