e-Waste is an ever-growing problem
e-Waste is growing faster than any other type of waste, with an annual volume close to 40 million metric tons globally¹. That's 88,200,000,000 pounds! The projected growth this decade is mind-boggling. A 2010 UN² study reports that the growing amount of e-waste could grow exponentially - as much as 500 times over the coming decade. That adds up to over 44,100,000,000,000 lbs!
