Reducing ewaste and its impact on Climate Change

Ewaste causes air pollution and impacts some animal species. Over time, air pollution can hurt water quality, soil and plant species, creating irreversible damage in ecosystems.
When broken or unwanted electronics are dumped in landfill, toxic substances like lead and mercury can leach into soil and water.

The Troop Leadership Team laid out a plan to collect ewaste from their Scouting community, from families and friends and also from the local mosques. We collected more than 1000 lbs of ewaste and sent it to the proper Recycling facility.

Overall, this was a great success and we felt happy that we could reduce so much from our own homes. In the future, we will be cautious in disposing our ewaste to keep our environment safe and prevent the accumulation of toxic substances and gases into the atmosphere.
