Me, My Gadget and our E-Waste

One of the exceptional attributes which shines through out our lives as humans is the innate desire to make, stay and grow in relations. Curiously this emotional aspect to bond and attach does not just hold good only for our kin, fellow beings or pet animals but also grows for our material possessions.

“Update: ZeroWaste is now InstaCash

Our lives today are so wired to be continuously working day in day out the long mundane schedules. In an effort not to be completely sucked we try all we can, not be drawn being ordinary. We try to keep our identities intact. Fighting hard for it we seek our own private little spaces. Giving our personal touches these become our own alter ego. Our cherished gadgets devices fill it and become our own extensions suggesting our desires to be unique. We thrill in the possession of our first computer, smart phone, tab our gaming consoles. We guard them, care for them as we see our own reflections in our gadgets.

As long as they stay with us they are source of our happiness. At times when they have troubles functioning we treat them and get them repaired. As all things with lives, these too have a predestined jolly good time with us. They do die out too!

However have you ever wondered what becomes of our lovely buddies at the end of their lives?
Most of us who get much attached, we just stack them up at one of the corners in our homes or offices as a remembrance of our once great camaraderie. After sometime when more and newer things come into our lives we just throw them up or sell these to one of the scrap dealers offering to take these away.

Little do we know that the scrap dealer who has never ever had any relationship with it shreds them out with acid, burns them in the open, throws their little remains in the ponds, rivers and landfills in the remote corners of our cities. Their cries pollute the waters and fill the air. They come back to us haunting our and our kid’s health and the environment we live in.

As a special member they do deserve a proper last rite. They require a final and honorable goodbye as a mark of respect for their happy association with us. As responsible human beings we need to take them to their proper stages of getting respectful ‘merging with elements’. We need to hand them to authorized handlers to get them recycled or refurbished if still some life stays in them so that they can stay worthwhile in other forms. They can be disintegrated with scientific and lawful ways to be in sync with nature.

Whatever ways we adopt these would suggest our own responsibilities towards our emotional partners.
As efficient and authorized handlers ZeroWaste ensures the most proper last stage rites of your old, discarded and dead electronics and electrical appliances.

You may get in touch with us to get your once prized electronic and electrical gadgets get the fitting final goodbye!
