Advanced electronics are (some would say) essential to life in the 21st century. But they also contain hazardous materials that must be recycled properly or else they can be very damaging to the environment.
Look around you, how many electronics do you see? Probably a lot!
We all have electronics, and most of us often get rid of the old ones when it's time for a new upgrade. What we often don't think about is where our old electronics go when we throw them "away."(Hint: there is no "away").
In the infographic below, WellHome takes a look at e-waste, where it all ends up, and how we can dispose of it properly to minimize environmental damage.
