Some people ask me why I still use my 5-year-old phone.
According to Crucial Technology:
+ Upgrading instead of replacing devices can mean up to a 92% reduction in potential e-waste and greenhouse emissions (Microsoft-ordered study).
+ Manufacturing one laptop or desktop computer requires 225 to 275 kg (500 to 600 pounds) of fossil fuels.
+ Keeping your PC for even two extra years can reduce e-waste by as much as 40%.
Any more questions?
