This International E-waste Day, let’s explore what e-waste is, why it’s a problem, and how you can make a difference by choosing refurbished devices, selling your old phone, recycling responsibly, and embracing the ‘’repair, don’t replace’’ mentality.
What is E-Waste?
E-waste refers to discarded electronic devices. These include smartphones, laptops, tablets, televisions, and more. As technology advances, our devices become obsolete at an alarming rate, resulting in a growing pile of e-waste.
Negative Impact of E-Waste
E-waste is a big problem for our planet. It has negative effects on the environment, society, and health. One reason why we need to handle e-waste responsibly is to save valuable resources. Electronic devices have rare metals and minerals, so recycling e-waste helps us recover those materials and stops us from doing more destructive mining. The United Nations says that each person will create 8kg of e-waste worldwide in 2023, which adds up to a whopping 61 million tonnes in just one year! Households are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to producing e-waste. It’s about time we acted and started recycling our old electronics instead of throwing them away.
