What are we doing further to the damage?

Globalization opened constructive possibilities as well as irreversible destructive impossibilities. E-Waste is one of the impossibilities before a decade. But, now, we have seen the opportunity to re-create or preserve destined for refurbishment, reuse, resale, salvage recycling through material recovery, or disposal are also considered e-waste.

For this year’s Olympics, participants who win their competitions will be awarded gold, silver, and bronze medals that are made from recycled e-waste.

Electronics are produced first when decided that their life span expires, the emphasis is placed on recycling adequate raw materials with an eye to reducing the actual waste to run down the mill of carbon & mineral minings.

Extracting things and manufacturing new products through recycling economic geeks observe that a circular economy could also prove to be a way for countries to secure the resources they need for the future without relying on floating prices of the global market.
