How Electronic Waste Affects Your Health and Planet?

Electronic waste, or e-waste, is the world's fastest-growing waste stream, posing a significant threat to both human health and the environment. A record-breaking 62 million metric tons of e-waste were generated globally in 2022, and this number is projected to surge to 82 million tons by 2030.

Despite this alarming growth, only a fraction, around 22.3%, of e-waste is recycled responsibly. This means the vast majority ends up in landfills, undergoes harmful informal recycling practices, or pollutes our environment. Improper e-waste disposal exposes people to toxic materials like lead, mercury, and flame retardants, leading to respiratory problems, neurological damage, and developmental issues in children.

E-waste contamination also harms ecosystems, with toxic chemicals leaching into soil and water sources, disrupting wildlife habitats, and bioaccumulating in the food chain. To combat this crisis, we need a multi-pronged approach.

This includes enforcing Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) policies that hold manufacturers accountable for the end-of-life cycle of their products, developing innovative e-waste recycling technologies, and fostering global collaboration to promote responsible e-waste management practices.

Consumers also play a vital role by extending the lifespan of electronics, properly disposing of e-waste, and supporting sustainable brands. By working together, we can turn the tide on e-waste and create a cleaner, healthier future for our planet.
