E-Waste in India: A Growing Concern
India's rapid technological advancements have led to a surge in the production and consumption of electronic devices. While this brings convenience and connectivity, it also gives rise to a significant challenge: the management of e-waste. E-waste comprises discarded electronics such as old smartphones, laptops, and appliances, and it poses both environmental and health risks.
The Environmental and Health Impacts of E-Waste
Improper disposal of e-waste has far-reaching consequences:
Environmental Pollution: E-waste contains hazardous materials like lead, mercury, and cadmium, which can seep into the environment and contaminate soil and water.
Health Risks: Exposure to these toxins can lead to severe health issues, including respiratory problems, skin diseases, and neurological disorders.
