Electronic waste or e-waste is the disposal of broken or obsolete electronic components and materials. E-waste material may be valuable and recyclable and created from anything electronic: computers, TVs, monitors, cell phones, PDAs, VCRs, CD players, fax machines, printers, and many other electronic devices. Most electronics are improperly thrown away; these contain various harmful materials such as Beryllium, Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead. When this e-waste is warmed up, toxic chemicals are released into the air damaging the atmosphere. The damage to the atmosphere is one of the biggest environmental impacts of e-waste. Therefore, there exists a need to recycle e-waste efficiently to keep our safe environment.
Keeping in mind the current situation of the environment, Adcom India known for its tech lifestyle accessories in India in collaboration with ‘Karo Sambhav’- India's leading Producer Responsibility Organization (PRO) has initiated their campaign ‘Hum E-waste Le Jayenge’. The campaign has been launched with the goal to spread awareness about e-waste while making individuals more informed about the social implications of e-waste and the importance to efficiently manage e-waste in an organized manner.
The campaign was incepted on January 29, 2020 at Adcom India’s Head Office in New Delhi firstly aiming to train and teach Adcom Team in identifying and separating different types of E-waste such that they could act as assets to promote the same further. After separation of e-Waste, the same is sent to respective organized channels for proper recycling. In this manner, the e-waste will no longer remain a threat to the environment.
To increase the awareness and participation, Adcom began a social media campaign with the same name to promote the same on various social media platforms....
