E-Waste are waste discarded from electronic items and 25 percent of e-waste is from computers in India. 20 to 50 million metric tons of e-waste are disposed worldwide every year. All these e-waste produces immense amount of toxic waste when incinerated. We throw away phones which has got valuable metals in it and thats why we get more recycling value on Apple phones. Its better to reuse products as much as we can before throwing it in the dump. Reusing / Upcycling saves the product from ending up in trash and it helps in reducing the carbon foot print of that particular product.
Upcycle it will try to find solutions for the product to not end in trash.
