Every year, 155,000 tonnes of electronic items are wasted or just thrown away (That is approximately the same weight as 38,750 elephants). These are the items that could have been saved or recycled.
This has a negative impact on the environment because these resources could have been used somewhere else. This could also mean that it would have made a big difference to our climate change too.
