Are you going to buy a new mobile phone on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?
If you are planning to buy the new iPhone 13 Pro Max or Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra - or another new mobile, you should know this:
You can earn money on the mobile you have today. Most mobile phones are left in a drawer and never used. Then it is much better to sell it, so that the life cycle is extended or the parts can be used for new mobiles. Few know about the problems surrounding electronic waste as a result of high consumption.
Dark numbers from Black Friday
Black Friday is known worldwide for the day you can "save" money on purchases.
But the truth is that we spend money on things we often don't need.
According to Marketing Dive, smartphones accounted for 40% of consumption (measured in kroner) online during Black Friday. All these new phones, tablets, cameras and other electronics will eventually become electronic waste, or "e-waste". Findings from the UN show that only 20 percent of e-waste is recycled. When electronics are disposed of in landfills, they have the potential to leach toxic materials such as lead and mercury into the air, water and soil, posing a health risk.
