Changing your attitude is the environmental solution. Over the last few years, attitudes and understanding towards a cleaner environment have started to change! The solution to a cleaner environment is adjusting your mindset and attitude toward the products we use everyday. One simple way to improve is to not throw your old computer in the trash. That computer is not an old milk carton. It’s filled with harmful metals and compounds.
Some businesses believe throwing an old computer in the trash won’t make that much difference! It is just one computer. Really? It makes a huge difference. Multiply that attitude and action by millions of people and corporations throwing away old laptops. We can all make a difference, lets reuse it or recycle in the safest way we can. Each old computer has recyclable parts that can be reused. Technology firms including Dell, Microsoft and Google have joined a new initiative aimed at creating a circular economy for electronics by 2030.
