Best wishes for the new year. As we all slowly return into the workplace, schools etc. device upgrades naturally happen. In most instances, every device replaced/upgraded means another device will be discarded of. But did you know that every device ever produced has a carbon footprint and is contributing to human-made global warming? According to The Geneva Environment Network, “when the carbon dioxide released over a device’s lifetime is considered, it predominantly occurs during production, before consumers buy a product”. The lack of recycling purely means that most of these devices will end up in landfills causing even bigger environmental hazards.
Go Green Electronic Recycling supports The Circular Approach for Electronics, aimed at extending the life cycle of electronic devices. We provide free nationwide collections of end-of-life IT Equipment, certified data destruction, e-waste recycling with competitive buy-back options for reusable devices. Our goal is to help everyone understand E-Waste, the environmental risks and hazards associated with it, its contribution to climate change, recycling, as well as how you can make a contribution. These topics will be discussed in-depth over the coming blogs. Here’s to a greener 2023.
