Adopt a Minimalist Mindset
One of the key steps to managing e-waste is reevaluating our consumption habits. By adopting a minimalist mindset, you can make more conscious decisions when purchasing new devices. Prioritize quality over quantity and avoid impulse buys, ensuring you make the most out of your electronics and reduce waste in the long run.
Extend the Life of Your Electronics
