Whether you are someone who loves technology and are always on top of the latest gadgets coming to market or someone who uses it as a necessary evil to do business and function in today’s society, we all benefit directly or indirectly from access to it. These benefits transcend geographical, language and socio-economic boundaries. Unfortunately, the negative impact when the hardware isn’t disposed of properly also transcends geographical, language and socio-economic boundaries.
Many areas of the world are prepared and able to handle the large scale increase of e-waste that will be generated in the coming years; however there is a large portion of the world that is not.
Read on to see how you can change the e-waste cycle.
