The state of electronics recycling is currently putting future generations in the firing line of a technological and ecological disaster. The facts need to be understood and the industry needs to come together to address it!
For many, what is said and what is the reality about the ewaste problem is worlds apart. People need to understand what the current climate looks like for the electronics industry, but more importantly, we need to embrace the solution to the issues we face or otherwise, we will continue down the route to the point of no return.
As a manufacturer, we know how crucial our role is in reducing waste and extending the economic and physical life of electronic products, as well as the ability for them to be repaired, recycled, and reused.
If we continue to develop technology at the rate we are able to, and continue with the linear new-for-old way of life, then our future generations will suffer. Our children and grandchildren will not benefit from advancing technology because they cannot have what they cannot make. We have revolved around this current cycle of upgrading to the latest version for far too long and it is not sustainable for the planet or our children.
This is what drove us to develop our ReUSE® and ReCYCLE™ technology, a way for us to protect future generations by inspiring sustainable electronics and we keep this at the heart of everything we do.
