RDW ALTERNATIVE TO INDUSTRIAL E-WASTE
The resting place of our discarded electronics is a mystery to most of us
– but why should it be?
By embracing a more hands-on approach to maintenance and repair, consumers and industry are taking direct responsibility for their contribution towards the E-waste disaster that is currently building. Sustainability is an action that is based on self-sufficiency. By encouraging industry to be accountable for their own waste and waste solutions – which can involve cutting out unnecessary waste completely through the modes of repair and maintenance – it gives the power of responsibility back to those who are actively involved. By being able to maintain their tools of production without external influences, companies can become self-reliant and untouched by the volatile landscape of electronic component shortages.
Heavy industry has a long history of being wasteful and environmentally damaging – at Repair, Don’t Waste, we believe this image can be changed towards a sustainable, circular future.
