We are always faced with choices in life. Choices that affect our health, well being and the world that surrounds us. But are we doing enough?
In 2019 only 17.4% of global e-waste was collected and properly recycled, which means that 44,3 million metric tonnes of e-waste, valued at GBP £44.7 billion, was either placed in landfill, burned or illegally traded and treated in a sub-standard way, and this is despite 71% of the world’s population being covered by e-waste legislation.
It is estimated that by 2030 that figure could rise to 75 million metric tonnes. Its obvious, as a population, we need to do more!!
