fighting e-waste

definition gear loves technology and loves it responsibly

did you know that electronic waste is the fastest-growing waste stream in the world? rapid changes in technology, changes in media (tapes, software, MP3), falling prices, and planned obsolescence have resulted in a fast-growing surplus of electronic waste around the globe

e-waste is considered the “fastest-growing waste stream in the world”* and in 2018 only, an estimated 50 million tons of e-waste was reported


our economy revolves around technology and the constant need for the newest and most high-tech products. cell phones, for example, have become the top source of e-waste products because they are not made to last more than two years


def gear(): wants to spread the passion for a sustainable approach to tech. for this reason we are partnering with Alba IWS, an e-waste recycler, to upcycle discarded parts
