Why re-using laptops helps both the earth and Corporate Social Responsibility
Everyone knows that re-using and recycling is good for the earth, but does everyone know why laptop recycling, specifically, is both good for the earth and CSR?
Rare elements and toxic materials used to make laptops are incredibly detrimental to our earth’s layers when they attempt to decompose in landfills. The toxic chemicals seep into the earth, ruining its properties for future use of the land.
In case that’s not bad enough, it’s a complete waste of the earth’s most rare and precious elements. A great deal of metal and chemicals goes into the creation of electronics, and when we carelessly throw them out, those special metals are thrown away forever.
By recycling laptops and other electronics, not only is the sustainability of the earth preserved for future generations, it also spares countries, specifically in Africa, where invasive mining occurs for the extraction of the metals.
Additionally, while doing this, corporations can improve their CSR tenfold, and subsequently, their stock value and consumer transactions. The public likes businesses that care about the community and environment. They will repay that commitment in the form of hard, cold sales leads.
