Guzu, launched by three New York eco-preneurs, pays consumers cash for their old electronics and then recycles them to the highest extent possible; helping to keep electronics out of landfills. On top of putting green in consumers’ wallets, Guzu also plants a tree for every transaction completed through their partner American Forests, a nonprofit organization that seeks to protect the natural capital of trees and forests.
