Earth Day 2018

Shout out to our planet Earth and all its beauty! For Earth Day this year the movement is focusing on ending plastic pollution. Since 1950, plastic production has grown about 8 percent annually. From computers and cell phones to televisions and microwaves, plastics have revolutionized the way we live with innovations in electronics we love! A 2016 study by the National Center of Electronics (NCER) found the typical flat screen device is made up of 20 – 24 percent e-plastics, 50 percent for printers, and more than 80 percent for keyboards and mice. That’s a lot of plastic and is one of the many reasons why it’s so important for consumers and businesses alike to take their unwanted electronics to a certified e-recycler.

When commodities are recovered, they’re diverted away from landfills. There’s also a ton of hazardous material in e-waste we don’t want seeping into our Mother Earth! About 70 percent of recycled tech is manufactured into reusable commodities including plastic, steel, aluminum, copper, lead, circuit boards, and glass. Unfortunately, only 15-20 percent of all e-waste makes its way to a recycling facility. The reuse of used electronics and their commodities sustains the earth and natural resources, conserves a significant amount of energy in manufacturing processes, and reduces greenhouse gas emissions from those facilities.

For Earth Day 2018, we’re presenting you a quick video on how the electronics recycling process works. Watch below and learn what happens to your electronics after they’re taken to a certified e-recycler!

Sunnking has residential electronics collection events in the upstate N.Y. area throughout the year. You can view the schedule by clicking below! Have more e-recycling questions? Feel free to give us a ring anytime at 585-637-8365!
