Eco Friendly Gadgets

Day by day the amount of gadgets around us is only increasing. From switching on a fan to reading a book, there is a gadget for everything. But do you know how much nuisance they are creating for the environment. Phones are being dumped almost at the rate of production. We are not realizing it at the moment but it is all piling up in our backyard only and by the time we do realize it, it will be all crumbling down upon us.

And e- wastes are hazardous too, because of the toxic chemicals that it contains.

It is the need of the hour to gather ourselves and find an alternative to this. Some of us have already done so. Let us have a look.
