A typical iPhone has 36 milligrams of gold and 90 milligrams of silver. Given the fact that Americans toss away 151 million phones per year, the natural resources that we are wasting is breathtaking! We have to do something to reduce the amount of phones thrown away. Watch my video about how the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Medals were made completely from recycled e-waste. Now it’s even illegal to throw phones into the trash in California. If your phone is still functioning well, please consider delaying your upgrade, or give your old phone to someone else. Check out the e-Stewards program to see how you can recycle your phone responsibly.
