ERA Donates Tech to Zera Café in Montreal

By electronic recycling association May 15, 2024

In the heart of Montreal, a beacon of inclusivity shines brightly at Zera Café. This unique establishment isn’t just about serving up delicious meals; it’s a testament to the power of community and the celebration of neurodiversity.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) recently donated a laptop and tablet to Zera Café. The laptop is designated for the director of operations to efficiently manage day-to-day tasks, while the tablets will serve as recipe references in the kitchen.

At the core of Zera Café’s mission is a dedication to providing meaningful employment for neurodivergent adults. The name “Zera,” meaning “seed” in Hebrew, encapsulates their vision of inclusivity and growth. Just like seeds have the potential to flourish into mighty trees, Zera Café believes in nurturing individuals to become valued members of both their workforce and the wider community.

The Electronic Recycling Association (ERA) is a non-profit organization founded in 2004 to address the growing problem of e-waste and the increasing ‘digital divide’. For over fifteen years, ERA has offered simple solutions to help individuals and organizations prevent operational equipment from premature destruction. With a focus on recovery, refurbishment, and reuse, ERA continuously supplies charitable groups with donated IT equipment while securely managing the retiring IT assets of organizations and individuals across Canada.

We believe that reuse before recycling is critical in managing the waste created by computer hardware, and by offering industry-leading data destruction for all equipment we receive, we have securely repurposed hundreds of tons of equipment. Because not everything ERA receives can be reasonably repurposed, we have partnered with certified recycling organizations to process equipment that has reached the end of its productive life.
