The problem – Electronic Waste (e-waste)
This day in age we need to be more and more aware that all these nice little gadgets that we collect don’t exactly filter back into the earth. Many times the end up in junk yards and add to the ever increasing problem of electronic waste(e-waste). When people look to get their devices fixed, often times they realize selling it is easiest and a gateway to getting an upgrade without the hassle. This is especially true in the iPhone repair industry where the turnover rate is quick.
According to Greenpeace.org:
Many old electronic goods gather dust in storage waiting to be reused, recycled or thrown away. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that as much as three quarters of the computers sold in the US are stockpiled in garages and closets. When thrown away, they end up in landfills or incinerators or, more recently, are exported to Asia.
As a preventative step in preserving the environment, we urge you to take the appropriate measures in order to limit e-waste.
