Teens Against E-waste (TAE) is a student-run, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that aims to raise public awareness of the pressing issue of e-waste, take action towards a greener planet, and engage teenage leaders due to our strong belief in youth activism.
TAE was founded by high school freshman Joshua Lou in spring 2021 in Cypress, California, and spread to Canada in September of the same year. To make a greater impact, we launched the international One Million Batteries campaign in November 2021 and the WEEEcycle campaign in July 2022.
So far, TAE has expanded to over 50 branches in six countries. For more information please check out our website, follow us on Instagram, and subscribe to our YouTube channel.
