Why Avoid E-Waste?
Electronic waste is incredibly toxic, and with free recycling solutions available, it's also completely unnecessary. Sadly, a report from the United Nations reveals that we produce 50 million tons of e-waste per year globally. That number is bound to grow if consumers continue to focus on scoring new technology without considering what they'll do with their old ones.
When they end up in landfills, electronics are resistant to decomposition. Plus, they contain a variety of harmful elements and materials that leach into the environment. In fact, despite forming just two or three percent of all municipal solid waste in the United States, electronics are responsible for 70% of the nation's total toxic waste.
