Action we take today will have lasting impact for generations to come!
E-waste can be a threat to our planet:
Illegal and poorly managed e-waste is polluting our environment, harming human health, and contributing to human-made climate change. The worst impacts are often in the countries that are least equipped to manage it.
Or it can be a valuable resource:
By recycling materials contained in e-waste we can save on greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from primary mining, we can create green jobs, and we can create economic opportunities. The intrinsic material value of global e-waste was estimated to be 48 billion euro in 2014. Let’s see it used again, not sent to landfills or dumped illegally.
We all have a part to play in the story of e-waste. We need YOUR help to take action and meet this challenge.
