Why you should be up-cycling your electronics

Why you should be up-cycling your electronics

The global interest in Sustainability and Environmental Responsibility has continued to increase in recent years, being described by GlobalData as a mega-trend*. More than ever before, consumers and businesses are more aware of their impact on the environment, with recycling becoming a norm in many households and offices. By now, we’re all pretty familiar with the process of recycling standard items such as glass, cardboard, paper and plastic – but what about electronic goods? As it turns out, recycling electronic products is not necessarily the best solution. Introducing: up-cycling – recycling’s lesser-known counterpart which helps save the planet, while saving you money.

 

Up-cycling reduces e-waste

Whether we like it or not, we live in a digital world where electronics are used for nearly all our communications and transactions – and there’s no sign of the digital era slowing down. Australia is one of the leading countries when it comes to smartphone users, with 88% of Australians owning one in 2017 and the percentage continues to rise.

With so many people relying on electronics, increased production levels also come with an increase in e-waste. There is a widespread issue of e-waste being shipped to landfills in developing countries, which largely comes from businesses and organisations disposing of their waste quickly, yet inefficiently. Although e-waste only accounts for about 2% to 3% of the volume in our landfills, it contributes close to 80% of overall toxic waste 

While you may think recycling is the answer to waste reduction, it actually requires a huge amount of energy to chemically or mechanically degrade products. When it comes to electronics, we should really be reusing in the first instance, or upcycling if the product no longer works.

 

Electronics Auctions

At Gregsons, we regularly hold auctions for a wide range of electronic goods, from second hand computers and tablets to reusable parts.

If you want to be more environmentally conscious when it comes to electronics, the first step is to try and avoid buying brand new products whenever possible. Purchasing items at auction is a creative, economic and environmentally friendly way to upcycle your electronic products at home. Check out our Computer & IT online auctions here
