Your laptop is about five times more energy-expensive to make than a car or a fridge!
To produce just a two-gram microchip of a laptop, 2000 times as much CO2 gets released. We are not asking you to give up your computer. All we ask is that you think twice before dumping the old machine for a new one. By just repairing your existing system, you would save carbon. Nearly one billion kg of electronic waste gets dumped in our cities each year. Only fewer than 10 per cent of computers are actually recycled.
