Best Buy and Microsoft are teaming up to celebrate Earth Month in style. Best Buy, known for its e-waste recycling efforts, is offering customers a $50 discount on Surface devices when they recycle their old laptops and tablets at Best Buy stores. But the excitement doesn’t stop there. These recycled devices will be used for an innovative fashion contest in collaboration with Junk Kouture, a sustainable fashion competition for youth.

NYC-area students will get creative, crafting high-fashion items from recycled tech. Equipped with Microsoft Surface Pro 9 devices and Microsoft 365 applications, students will collaborate and design avant-garde pieces.

This partnership underscores both companies’ commitment to sustainability and inspires customers to make a positive impact on the planet. It’s a fashionable twist on Earth Day activism, demonstrating that recycling old tech can lead to innovative solutions and lasting environmental benefits.
