By generating an astounding 1.85 million tonnes of e-waste annually, India has become the fifth biggest e-waste producing country in the world. When electronics end up in landfills, toxics like lead, mercury, and cadmium enter into the soil and water. The ewaste problem is huge all over the world, more than 20 million tons of e-waste are produced every year.
We as an individual can reduce our carbon footprint by not throwing e-waste into the landfills. We can search for the recycling provider around our locality and give it to them or we can start reusing them in creative ways.

We buy a lot of Mineral Bottles and wonder what to do with them. This is one idea how they can be reused and used as Lamp Shades indoor and Outdoor.
E-waste is one more major waste we produce and some of it are taken care by the recycle providers when it comes to corporate establishments. We still end up with E-Waste at homes and with that also we can make many many good reuse out of them. This is a pendant i made from E-waste wire, i did made matching Ear rings too.
