E-waste is non-biodegradable and therefore has a very harmful effect on ecosystems. What we don’t realize is that most of the e-waste is dumped in landfills, which gets accumulated and emit toxic chemicals into the land and groundwater table. When this happens, it poses great health risks as these devices have substances like cadmium, lead, arsenic, mercury, etc., which if not dealt with properly, are detrimental to human, plant and animal health.
Currently, most of the e-waste in India is being managed by the informal sector. This sector does not have the adequate means or knowledge to deal with e-Waste appropriately. Therefore, this International E-Waste day, we encourage you to practice e-waste management in the right manner and be a more conscious citizen.
India is officially the world’s third-biggest e-waste generator, producing over 3.23 million metric tonnes of e-waste per year, with 95% of the e-waste being handled by the informal sector.
All of us have a part to play in ensuring we create an environment that is safe to live in. This E-waste Management Day, Cerebra Green will be happy to collect any electronic devices that you want to dispose of. These devices will go through a formal evaluation to understand if it has reached their end of life, or it can be refurbished. All the devices that can be refurbished will then be donated to children from underprivileged backgrounds to help with their education.
