WRAP | What is the environmental impact of your electronics and how can you cut it?

ACR+ member WRAP developed an online quiz, designed to test people’s knowledge on ways to reuse or recycle old electronics and electrical, as well as new research on business strategies that could prevent them going to landfill. Questions ranging from “the amount of electronic and electrical items purchased in the UK” to “percentages of new mobile phones that are purchased in the UK and replaced while they are still functional” and “the company that patented self-healing phone display” intend to invite participants to reflect on the electronic waste issue.
Each correct answer is followed by a short explanation. Thereby participants can gain more knowledge, among others, on the reasons that prevent people from re-use as well as the spots where their used electric and electronic devices could be taken in order to ensure that they are recycled properly.
