Tackle the e-waste problem with 7479c: The app that rewards consumers for their sustainable lifestyle and builds a marketplace for the electronic industry. Backed by SDGs.
Our world is going through a major shift.
The shift affects how we buy, sell and manufacture goods. It also changes the way we think about waste.
*Surveys by KPMG & IBM 2020
One of our biggest waste problems is electronic waste (e-waste). In 2019 we produced 53.6 M metric tons. Less than 20% were recycled, but the entire value of it is equal to approx. 57 billion USD.
e-waste is shipped from high- to low-income countries where it is managed by the informal sector
0,3% of global energy-related emissions were caused by discarded fridges and air-conditioners
waste management handled by informal sector damages people, environment & infrastructure (clean water)
technologies to recycle e-waste are already developed, but old devices are resold and not recycled
mining new raw materials is expansive, dangerous and accelerates global warming
Electronic devices hibernate in households and build a barrier to circular stock
