make IT green. What do you do when your mobile phone stops working? Or your computer breaks down? Every year, we throw away up to 50 million tonnes of unwanted electronic waste – e-waste. That’s enough to fill one million trucks that would stretch half way around the entire globe if they were parked end to end. This and more in the new leaflet/consumer guide by makeITfair.
