Since the start of 2017, we have thrown out more than 6.4m tonnes of electronic goods, according to The World Counts, a website keeping a live tally of global e-waste. If past patterns are any judge, not much of this will get properly recycled: less than a sixth of the e-waste discarded around the world in 2014 was dealt with in this way, says the UN.

  1. Wow! I had no idea. A lot of computers here are donated to organizations that “clean” them up and donate them to schools, people who can’t afford to buy them, senior centers, etc., but it’s only a small amount of the computers that are discarded each year.

  2. The disgrace of a throwaway society. This could be either depressing or motivating. The Earth will tolerate only so much before she revolts in bigger ways than already seen… Thanks for posting, Chris 💚
