More unwanted computers needed in light of increasing digital fracture

The pandemic has reinforced digital education inequalities worldwide whilst e-waste generation continues growing and we would like to thank JPMorgan for their recent generous contribution of re-usable IT equipment.
Did you know? A record 53.6 million tons of e-waste was generated worldwide in 2019, up 21% in just 5 years, according to the UN’s Global E-waste Monitor 2020.
The new report also predicts global e-waste -- discarded products with a battery or plug -- will reach 74 MT by 2030, almost a doubling of e-waste in just 16 years. This makes e-waste the world's fastest-growing domestic waste stream, fueled mainly by higher consumption rates of electric and electronic equipment, short life cycles, and few options for repair.
“Substantially greater efforts are urgently required to ensure smarter and more sustainable global production, consumption, and disposal of electrical and electronic equipment. This report contributes mightily to the sense of urgency in turning around this dangerous global pattern.” By David M. Malone, Rector United Nations University, From EurekAlert! news release on July 2, 2020
