Circulaire Economie Circulaire Economie Other

E-waste Arcades is committed to promoting reuse of raw materials and creating awareness about electronic waste. By making recycle fun and easy, we want to bridge the gap between the consumer and the recycler. Have you ever wondered how many electronic products we use every day? Have you ever wondered where all the raw materials of these products come from? Or have you ever imagined what happens to our devices when they are discarded? Everyone knows, you've got some old electronics around. An old phone, broken dvd player or an alarm clock for example. Nevertheless, it's repeatedly eliminating these electronic devices, also called e-waste. It will be stored in the attic or end up with the residual waste. What a shame! This way all raw materials are lost or can not be used for reuse. And that while threatening important commodities with extinction! In Europe, only a third of the electronic waste is recycled. That should be better and could be better! We want to make a difference by making recycling more fun and easier while increasing consumer awareness. This means that valuable raw materials can be reused and we being kind to the environment!
