What You Need To Know About Electronic Waste (eWaste)
Have you heard of Eric Lundgren? The hobbyist who built an electric car from scrap metal that outperformed a Tesla! The motivation behind the build of this fantastic electric vehicle, the Phoenix, was to highlight eWaste. The Phoenix was built with "scrap" products that were doomed to become eWaste. Lundgren has been focused on hybrid recycling and reducing e-Waste, two issues that America has fallen behind the curve on.
Not many people are aware of the seriousness of the mounting e-Waste issue. While many are marginally mindful of the importance of recycling aluminum, glass, and plastic, not many people are aware of the valuable elements that power their smart devices. This in conjunction with the consumer culture is catalyzing eWaste phenomena.
Did you know that the inefficiency in the industry inadvertently hinders the progress of fields such as solar energy, wind keeping power, and electric cars? Materials, so quickly discarded and forgotten, are instrumental in the development of alternative energy. Samsung is already experiencing the consequences of eWaste and is turning to recovering material from recycled devices as cobalt becomes increasingly scarce.
As eco-conscious members of the industry, we want to do our part to change the culture. We offer convenient repair services, in our store, at clients homes or business or by mail. The longevity of a device should not be determined by the availability of the next upgrade.
