    What surprises me most is the amount.

    Would like to see frivolous uses of electronics end. Companies, like Hallmark, who put electronics in their greeting cards for sound and light take no responsibility for the e-waste they are creating. They offer no recycling options and make the rest of the greeting card hard to recycle. I buy no greeting cards with electronics or glitter, but unfortunately people sometimes send such cards to me and the challenge of responsible disposal becomes mine.

    What is the most disturbing to me is that a large number of these electronics end up in landfills. I hope someone there recycles them properly so they are not sitting in a landfill. We always recycle or donate our old electronics.

    Planned obsolescence is terrible. My last PC was almost 10yrs old and ran fine, until one tiny, irreplaceable chip died - designed to make the computer useless. I'll strip the PC for parts, pull out anything useful for crafting, then recycle the rest. I recently got my first smart phone - Forget shiny new upgrades, I'm keeping this thing until it dies, I never wanted one and I'm not buying another until forced to, lol.
