How It All Starts

Every year, hundreds of tones worth of smartphones, tablets, laptops, headphones and many more are stopped being used or thrown away completely because they’re either outdated, broken or get unusable.

What Are These E-Waste Made Of

Electronic internals are mostly made of precious metals, such as, copper, silver and gold due to their high conductivity and non-corrosive properties.

1 ton of mined land would produce about 5 grams of gold, whereas 1 ton of electronics can contain about 350 grams of gold.

Current Solution

Current solution to harnessing these precious metals from e-waste is by sending them overseas to poorer countries with fewer environmental regulations. These countries use very toxic and dreadful processes- letting a whole landfill of e-waste burn and later collecting them- which process poisonous and life-threatening byproducts, polluting the air, and even the water streams nearby the area.
