Electronic waste and the importance of diverting its waste from landfills

We live in a culture where technology is growing and changing so rapidly that all our old technology is becoming disposable at the same rate.

In Metro Vancouver, a third of all landfill violations were as a result of electronic waste (e-waste).  This is a shockingly high number, not just because people are throwing away old electronics, but due to the fact that there are many facilities where you can return your electronics for free recycling!

We all need to be accountable and responsible for the amount of waste we produce and how we can responsibly dispose of it.  Electronic waste is one of the most toxic and hazardous to the environment.

There is a vicious circle of consume and dispose that is running rampant across our cities.  Individually, and as a whole, we need to move forward on new solutions and ideas that creates closed-loops systems.  Systems where waste is not created and can be recycled, upcycled, or diverted back into the same process making system.

An example of this type of technology and system is through making modular cell phones.  Check out the video below for more information.
