Eco-Tech: SK tes Consumer Solutions Contribution To World Earth Month 2024

World Earth month image

Recently, there was an article on BBC News that mentioned the hoards of unwanted and broken tech that we have stacked and stashed inside our homes are growing at a rapid rate. Within the last 4 years, on average we had around 20 unwanted tech items in our homes, but now it’s 30! It was also revealed that around the world, only about 12% of our E-Waste is actually recycled correctly and the rest is just thrown into our rubbish bins where it is then sent off to landfills and burnt which allows harmful toxins to be released into the air.

Referring back to the BBC article, stated that an estimated 880 million units of unused tech items are being held in UK homes right now with about £1 billion in value sitting there unused.


Lots of people are unsure what to do with their old tech once they have bought new. And considering April is World Earth Month with the 22nd specifically being World Earth Day, we wanted to share how we at SK tes Consumer Solutions help contribute positively towards the planet by recycling tech.
