Do you have piles of electronics laying around your home that you aren't sure what to do with?
You are not alone. Most of us find ourselves scratching our heads at what to do with it. Do I put them in the garbage to go to the landfill? Can I recycle them? Should I give them to my tech friends? Should I keep letting them collect dust till I can figure it out?
Not to fret!! Here you will find some information about our mission to make it easier and more accessible for people to dispose of their electronic waste. You will find tons of resources to help you make the best decisions when it comes to your electronic waste and be part of the solution.
Click around to find links to learn about what electronic waste is, how it is made, its impacts on our health & environment, its management, the benefits of being an electronic waste steward, and how you can sustainably recycle electronics. We want to share as much information about this topic with as many people as possible so we can all make informed decisions about how we interact with our electronics and how to best reduce, reuse, repurpose, recycle, and donate our gadgets.
I am a Girl Scout and learned about the Girl Scout Silver Award - the highest award a Cadette can earn. I loved that the award was about making an impact locally and across the globe. I dreamed of creating something that Girl Scout troops everywhere could band together and do in their communities year after year. Brainstorming on new ways we could help penguins and ocean wildlife ... I came across Electronic Waste as a big problem for oceans that no one was addressing.
I dove into my Silver Award Project and created the E-Waste Revolution. I reached out to local aquariums and organizations to find ways to create new collection sites. I even had my city proclaim E-Waste Day which is recognized nationally to raise awareness. I presented to my troop and asked them to help me - I created a guidebook that makes it easy for troops to collect e-waste. I also wrote a children's book on the topic to share this message with our youth.
