E-Waste Is Still A Problem
When it comes to the holidays, some of the most popular gifts are without a doubt electronics.
This invariably leads to the disposal of our older tech, which if done improperly, can be a very bad thing.
Unfortunately, most consumers have no idea just how many toxins are used to manufacture our gadgets, so they just throw them in the trash.
To keep these toxins from polluting our ground water, consider repurposing your old tech as someone else may be able to use it.
Charities, homeless shelters and local schools are just the beginning of possibilities for repurposing your old tech.
If that’s not an option, finding a responsible electronic recycling program in your area will be your next search.
E-waste is generated by the hundreds of millions of tons each year, so we all need to do our part to keep it our of our landfills.
