REGAME, INC.

Giving a New Life to Gaming Systems

ReGame, Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to helping battle the problem of electronic waste (E-waste). 

Our goal is to repurpose and repair used gaming systems and tablets and donate them to those who can use and enjoy them. 

 

WHAT WE DO

ReGame Inc. is a Non-Profit.  The "Re" comes from REcycle, REuse and REduce E-waste. 

 

ReGame, Inc. gives new life to old gaming consoles and tablets.

Regame, Inc. is currently accepting used gaming systems (PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox, Wii etc.), handheld gaming systems, tablets, games, and controllers. 

Volunteers clean the systems and perform any needed repairs.  Volunteers then donate the systems to those who can enjoy them. 

Currently, we are focusing on contacts with local Ronald McDonald Houses, Retirement Homes and Senior Centers, Baptist Children's Homes, Hospitals, and Foster Care Group homes.  Individual foster parents can also apply to get a gaming system free of charge.

WHAT IS E-WASTE AND WHY DOES IT MATTER?

E-waste is Electronic waste.  Last year more than 40 million tons were put into landfills..that's about 800 laptops EVERY SECOND!

 

E-Waste deposits toxic materials that can leach into our water supplies and wasting valuable materials like copper, gold and silver.  85% of our E-Waste are sent to incinerators, releasing toxic fumes into the air. 

Currently only 12% of electronics are recycled.

It takes approximately 530 lbs of fossil fuel, 48 lbs of chemicals, and 1.5 tons of water to manufacture one gaming system and monitor.

We are striving to help keep used gaming systems out of landfills and get them in the hands of children who can enjoy them.

ABOUT OUR FOUNDATION

E-Game is founded by Elijah, Lydia, and Bethany, siblings from North Carolina. 

We first learned about the problem of E-waste during the summer of 2021.  Our mother, a science teacher, was taking part in a Samsung/Mindspark Teacher Academy about E-waste.  When we discovered the problem facing us and our community, we were determined to fix one small part of the problem.  After countless ideas and lots of brainstorming, ReGame, Inc. was born!  

While we know ReGame won't solve the entire E-waste problem, we hope that it will make a small difference. 

Elijah, the founder of ReGame, Inc. says:

"If enough of us make small differences, they will add up to something big."
