Advanced technology has come and has modified itself to be in our lives daily without thought or process. Our generation has been obsessed with the new comings of electronics. 84% of 13-17 year olds own a mobile phone, 83% of adults own a Mobil device. We as a society change our phones faster than we change outfits. An average cell phone user replaces their unit once every 18 months. But what you don’t see is, once broken, where does it go?
Why choose EwasteCleanup
E-waste companies gather around 40 million tons of e-waste every year, worldwide. That’s like throwing 800 laptops every second. 85% of E-Waste are sent to landfills and incinerators are burned which release harmful toxins in the air! We as environmentalist, don’t allow or affiliate with landfills or burning of electronics that pollute the air. The only solution to protect the environment is by calling us and we can slowly close these landfills and unite as one to protect the environment.
Why we should recycle
Recycling 1 million laptops saves energy equivalent to the energy used by 3600 homes in the U.S annually. Imagine what we can do with 40 million tons of e-waste. Cellphones and other electronic devices contain many valuable metals, for example gold and silver. The US alone throws away cellphones with $60 million worth of gold/silver yearly. We must recycle for the sake of the environment. So we won’t spend so much money, and let our resources go to waste.
