How to dispose used smartphones the smart and sustainable way
Make what's good for you better for everyone else. It's time for a change.
Did you know that the Philippines produced approximately 22 million units of mobile phone waste in 2016? And according to this research, the country is predicted to produce over 24.9 million units by 2021!
Also stated in the same study, their survey found that 95 percent or almost all the respondents have no idea about proper waste disposal of mobile phones. This is quite alarming because improper disposal of electronic waste leads to environmental and health risks.
But don't fret! Together, we can make a great change that will leave a lasting impact for the planet, even if it starts in our own little ways.
