As we demand more electronic devices for our daily use, our old electronics continue to pile up, posing an environmental problem. It’s estimated today that only 15% of electronic devices and equipment are recycled in the United States. The energy required to manufacture and distribute computers is extensive (recycling one million laptops saves the electricity equivalent used by over 3,500 homes in a single year), and non-recycled computers are a large source for common water and soil toxins and carcinogens like lead, mercury and cadmium.
