How to Consume Technology in an Eco-friendly Way:
1. Look after your electronics and accessories!
Treat your electronics, phone chargers and phone cases with care. By looking after your electronics, they will last longer which means you are making the most out of their lifecycle.
2. Don’t buy excess!
Purchase the items you need, not the ones that you want. There is no need to always be buying the new iPhone, instead make the most out of your phone before you look to replace it. In addition, purchasing quality accessories makes them last, buying 10 cheap phone charges instead of one good one causes a lot of waste.
3. Properly recycle your old devices
Don’t just throw your old devices away, you have the option to trade them in or recycle them at some cell carrier store or other electronics retailers. They can be used to create new phones which further prolongs the lifecycle of your device!
Choosing to consume technology in an eco-friendly way is a precursor to choosing to live a more suitable lifestyle. In order to help the environment, we all need to bring sustainability into every aspect of our lives.
