Thumbs Up: Certified badasses
NUVO pledged its support for local nonprofit RecycleForce with a Cultural Vision Award — and that was just for its work recycling all sorts of challenging materials and providing vocational and community support for ex-offenders working to make successful transitions back into free society. The love goes even deeper this week with the announcement that RecycleForce earned R2 Standard certification for responsible handling of "environmental, health, safety, and security aspects of electronics recycling" and working to ensure toxic materials are handled in the safest way possible throughout the disposal process. RecycleForce is the first nonprofit in the Midwest to earn the externally audited R2. It's the fourth R2-certified business in Indy and the sixth in the state.
