Constant innovations and breakthroughs in technology are helping the world. Electronic products such as television, cell phones and computers have brought great convenience to people.
There is no doubt that they make our life colorful.
But there’s a downside. The amount of electronic wastes, or products that have outlived their useful life, is growing so rapidly that
it represents a threat now. One of the problems people concern most is that the components in many electronic products contain harmful chemicals that can leak into the ground, contaminate
underground water, pollute the environment, and finally do harm to people’s health.
E-waste is a global problem. To address it, countries around the world must take action now to control the situation. Concerned regulation or law should be passed for the disposal of e-waste. For example, the government should require retailers to collect and recycle used electronics.
