Happy World Earth Day!
Today marks 50 years since World Earth Day started back in 1970 and while many people are conscious of trying to reduce their use of plastic, it is also worth mentioning that people often neglect to think about the electronics that they consume.
Discarded laptops, mobile phones and electronic goods are now the world’s fastest growing waste problem. As technology has progressed, the more disposable electronic devices have become, the more we are throwing away, and the quicker devices are becoming obsolete. For example, when the first mobile phones came out, you kept them for years - now people just throw them away everytime a new phone comes out.
Electronics provider, Moshi, have a philosophy of ‘fewer, better’ to encourage customers to choose quality items that last longer rather than the cheap/fast products that need to be replaced. Moshi now offer a 10-year Global Warranty to ensure that tech really will last and encourage responsible purchasing of these products that will be better for our planet.
