The Growing E-waste: Means to a Livelihood and Resource Management!

We all know that e-waste is hazardous but we don’t do anything about it. You know why? Because, we think, let others do it! This is exactly why Namo e-Waste came into being. To begin somewhere, we need everyone’s cooperation. Yours too!
Did you know, it was only when China refused to accept 24 varieties of solid waste, the big countries like the US and the UK along with Japan and Australia realised they were in a soup. Until then, China used to take 70 percent of the world’s unused electronic waste. The country realised the harmful impact of e-waste and banned it. Southeast Asia was the next chosen destination to dump the e-waste; soon the countries in the region like Thailand and Vietnam too curbed the e-waste import. Did you observe, how all these countries want others to manage their e-waste and save the planet, like we mentioned earlier; we do not do it because we wait for others to do it. Enough is enough! E-Waste production has surged globally by 21% in just five years, as per a report by the United Nations.
