Electronic Waste Management (EWM) is a 3 Generation family owned and operated business. Click for Photo. Sustainability (sustainable development) was defined in the 1987 Brundtland Report as development that "meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs".
With the belief of World Sustainability for Baby Amaia, all Global children, and future generations, three generations of the Borgstrom family joined to birth a new company. Spawning from the family's 10 year old commercial office furniture business (ACQ) to develop what is known today as Electronic Waste Management (EWM). In 2005 California enacted the Electronic Waste Recycling Act: SB20 and SB50 (www.calrecycle.ca.gov) banning many electronic devices from landfills. EWM (ACQ) was one of the early companies that became a State-Approved Collector (CEWID#102857).
