Non-Functional Hardware Sales Agreement
Free Geek Vancouver's primary goal is to reduce the environmental impact of computer products through re-use and ethical recycling. We are a member of the Basel Action Network's E-Stewards Pledge Program, which holds us to the highest international standards in handling electronic waste.
