Electronic waste affects nearly every system in the human body because the materials that make up e-waste contain a plethora of toxic components, including mercury, lead, cadmium, polybrominated flame retardants, barium, and lithium. They will also significantly affect the human body's nervous and reproductive systems.
If you want to protect the planet and save it for future generations, you need to support proper e-waste disposal.
- If not disposed properly, the toxins present in electronic goods will reach the ground soil and pollute both air and water.
- Proper disposal also means recovery of many essential raw materials present in these electronic devices. Extraction of these raw materials would mean lesser lynching of the nature for creation of new devices.
-Beneficial for the Environment. While saving energy is one of the environmental benefits of tech waste recycling, there are many others.
- Recycling the waste from electronics saves space in the landfills and prevents the environmental pollution caused by the toxins. Recycling also reduces the need for landfills in the first place. Goods made from recycled materials use less water, create less pollution, and uses less energy.
- Recycling items or purchasing previously used or recycled items helps the earth replenish itself – which in turn help us become healthier in our environments.
