Calgary, Alberta (April 10th, 2018) – The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA), a non-profit organization addressing the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’ announced this morning the business’ rebrand to the Electronic Reusing Association. This comprehensive rebrand elevates the focus on reuse rather than recycle and this will be evident in their new logo and website within the coming months.
The ERA has been in business for over 14 years and in light of their 15th year anniversary which is set to take place in March 2019, they decided it was the right time for a change. Throughout 2018 they will be slowly introducing their new name to the public, hoping to fully rebrand by March 2019, just in time for their anniversary. The ERA’s new link will look like this www.electronicreusingassociation.ca.
“ERA is all about change and expansion. Within the last four years, we have opened up 3 new operating depots and feel it is time for ERA to rebrand,” said Bojan Paduh, Founder, and President of the Electronic Reusing Association. “Throughout the last 14 years, we have named ourselves the Electronic Recycling Association. However, within that time we have had individuals mistake ERA for a recycling centre. We believe in repurposing unwanted and used electronics and we want that to be reflected in our name. Hence, why we feel the Electronic Reusing Association is the right move for us.”
Please visit www.electronicreusingassociation.ca to explore the new website and learn more about the suite of services the ERA offers.

We were delighted to donate 3 computers, 2 laptops, a projector and network switches to Pioneer Camp Alberta. This organization was set up for the purpose of helping children and youth grow spiritually, mentally, socially and physically in a fun-filled and safe place of adventure and challenge.
This donation will increase their office's workability by having faster machines. Speaking with Della Ganske, Office Manager at Pioneer Camp Alberta she stated, “The majority of our computer equipment is old and ageing and needs replacement. Receiving a donation of this nature would substantially increase our offices' abilities to perform work more effectively and efficiently.”
Most organizations have a limited budget that they can dip into. While speaking with Della, she explained, “Receiving electronic equipment donations would also allow us to redirect limited budget dollars to other areas, such as program development for the various summer camps that we run during the summer.”
Founded in 1951, they have been operating ever since as a life-changing summer camp for children and youth. They are committed to seeing young people transformed by the love of God actively at work in their lives. They are part of a network of nine InterVarsity camps across Canada operating under the names Circle Square and Pioneer Camp.
In addition to their summer camp ministry, they also operate as a retreat centre for the months of September to June.
