Are you responsible for the contaminated soil?

Often you throw a mobile phone or a smartphone just because you do not like it anymore, it is not the latest model or it is slightly dented and we take the opportunity to buy a new one. But these electronic devices are highly polluting and cause the exploitation of millions of workers. They should accompany you for many years, yet in industrialized countries the average life of a computer has dropped from 6 years in 1997 to 2 in 2005, while mobile phones have a life cycle of less than 2 years.

Take for example the production of a PC

Raw materials are extracted such as lithium, cadmium or battery Coltan. The Coltan, a fundamental element for the production of mobile phones and video games was one of the causes of the wars that devastated Congo. Coltan contains a part of uranium so it is radioactive, which causes tumors but extracted from miners with bare hands.Waste products poison air and water in areas where there are factories, with few exceptions.The supply chain is quite long, which leads to an excessive consumption of CO2 for transport, an increase in costs for the final buyer and a compression of earnings for the most humble workers.

Perfect disposal is mandatory

When you buy a PC or smartphone, you keep in mind the Greener electronic guide, a ranking of electronic companies that gives us a hand to choose companies less worse in terms of the environment. You always prefer easily repairable electronic objects that meet the principles of eco design. If your electronic trinkets are broken, you try to get them fixed, not only by those who sold them but who have every interest in making new ones. If they cannot be adjusted, you donate these items to the rewires workshop that could reuse some components, putting together different pieces for functional restoration. It is also a way to break down the digital divide between people, social sectors and countries since many of these PCs are then sent to projects in the South of the world.

Conclusion: what is right and wrong?

When we use a computer you consume energy. A powerful desktop can consume even 500 watts, while a laptop hardly absorbs more than 50 watts. To know how to recycle your used PC or any electronics parts including leaked batteries, you can call any of the best recycle service providers immediately. Learn more about Kinsbursky brothers, how they are recycling the waste products properly with years of experience. Instead of buying new PCs or cell phones, you ask relatives or friends if they have one used. In many homes there are unused but working phones and your friends will be happy to sell or even give it away.

 

 

Travel Operators And Online Reputation Management

Travel companies, along with major establishment companies, are ready to improve their efforts in online reputation management. Because of the convenience factors, online travel sites are often used and subscribed to by many users. You can book tickets at subsidized rates and you can also enjoy the convenience of booking your tickets in the comfort of your home.  However, although it is a hot online industry, if things go wrong, it invites too many anger and bad publicity. There are issues when credit card fees are declined, tickets are not given at the right time, seat numbers are horrific, or if the account is fraudulent. All these times and more the consumer has to take a flat.

 

Consumers have to ensure that they create discontent in blogs and forum sites. On a forum site or message board, you may be giving people reviews about how the service sucks or how to charge them for fraud. The allegations can be true or in some cases, the company may also be right. How does online travel company clarify or provide appropriate feedback? It does this through a corporate blog, a forum that progressive and reputable alert companies have actively activated on review sites, in response to consumer comments and whiplash.

 

It is a positive step that such companies have taken to ensure they maintain their business, show their side of the picture to their customers. At the top, it improves the communication level between customers and the company.  Based on the corporate blog, a lot of questions have been solved and many doubts, issues, and speculations have been rested. Progressive companies have gone ahead and through various services and forum sites have come to know what is being written about their service.  It helps in taking care of the shortcomings and establishing the wrong mistakes. Sometimes companies do not pay attention to pass some charges or eliminate certain costs that consumers have to pay for goodwill. A small sacrifice definitely pays and a steady monitoring helps to a great extent.
