At ACE Recycling, we believe that knowledge is power and that small changes can have a big impact. To commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day in 2020, we wrote a series of blogs to help equip our readers with the information they need to make conscious decisions to reduce their environmental impact. We invite you to join us in making every day Earth Day by taking small steps to live more sustainably and create a healthier life for yourself and your loved ones.

This video looks 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 by mining the raw material to make the components for our electronics. Less obvious is the release of carbon through the manufacturing process & transporting the equipment and using it. Toxic chemicals leach into the environment through the improper disposal of the device. The video explains the small changes you can make for big impacts on the carbon footprint of your electronics.
