Only 1 in 5 discarded electronic items is recycled

557 islands of garbage floating in the Pacific. That's how much e-waste the world produced in 2018.

    Yet there are lines outside every Apple store when the next model phone/laptop/watch comes out.. even though they already have one that works perfectly fine.. 😔

    And what area of the world is responsible for the majority of it? Asia!

    Less than 9% of our plastic is actually recycled. China now refuses to take our garbage and recycle in the USA

    If theres that much money to be made somebody needs to get buisy and figure a profitable way to recycle this stuff

    Aqui no Brasil o plástico está descontrolado também. A fiscalização deveria existir.

    Why jobs just in China? We badly need an infrastructure bill which would include more and advanced recycling plants. We were shipping to China. They no longer want it.
