RadioShack Loves Yellow and Lives Green.
With more than 4,700 small-format stores in strip malls and shopping centers across the U.S. and in Mexico, RadioShack combines the purchasing power of a national retailer with the personal touch of a neighborhood merchant. Our corporate citizenship activities reflect this through programs that support specific endeavors in the communities where we live and work by promoting global issues, such as cancer awareness, environmental responsibility, stewardship and compliance.
Joining the global fight against cancer
The cornerstone of our philanthropic program is our partnership with LIVESTRONG®, the foundation that inspires and empowers individuals who are affected by cancer — whether they are actively battling the disease, or survivors, friends and family members. RadioShack supports the LIVESTRONG mission through fundraising, building awareness and facilitating advocacy. We achieve these goals by harnessing the power of our vast store network, our more than 34,000 associates and our connections with millions of customers each year. As one of the largest corporate partners for LIVESTRONG, RadioShack has collected more than $12 million for the global fight against cancer.
Preserving the Environment
RadioShack is committed to operating in a way that's environmentally responsible — from prudent sourcing and recycling to facilitating proper disposal of used electronics. We promote these initiatives through our Trade & Save program, which enables our customers to exchange their working electronics for a credit or upgrade to new products, as well as our in-store recycling programs, which encourage consumers to bring their used rechargeable batteries and cellphones to any RadioShack location for free, responsible recycling. For more information on Trade & Save, click here. To find out more about our rechargeable battery and cellphone recycling programs, click here.
Upholding Our Responsibility
We are committed to compliance with all federal, state, and local laws, rules, and regulations that apply to our business, and our vendors and business partners must agree to comply with the same standards.
