HEALTH EFFECTS

When we throw out our electronics, they land up in Landfill causing the possibility of toxic metal leaching into the groundwater. Toxic metals in e-waste leach into our supply of resources, threatening their integrity. When e-waste is openly heated which is a rudimentary process by the un-registered user or scrap dealers, toxic chemicals are released into the air, damaging the atmosphere and posing a serious threat to health and existing life.

E-Waste management is a critical consideration for future generations as proper e-waste recycling is becoming hard to find, with very less efficient recyclers in the business.

E-Waste is not a problem going away soon. In fact with the alarming rise in the use of electronics and electrical products the volume is only going to rise. As per a study by ASSOCHAM, it is said to be growing at a rate of 33% cumulative every year. With all the produce and dump which happens in India, it is said to have a 500% increase in e-waste over the next decade.

It is crucial to know effects of e-waste on the environment, and make a collective effort to build awareness and systems to curb all its ill positioning for our existing and future generation. To know more please call on 1800-572-775 and be a Green Volunteer.
