In the third installment of ACE Recycling’s #EarthDay2020 blog series we will look at Carbon & Our Electronics. As explained in the first two articles of this series, everything has a carbon footprint. The electronic devices we use daily are not an exception to this. Carbon is released through the mining of the raw material to make the components for our devices, the manufacture & transport of the device, and its use. Carbon and other toxic chemicals are also released through the improper disposal of the device at the end of its life. The video explains the #SmallChanges you can make for #BigImpacts on the carbon footprint of your electronics.
