It is estimated that over 21 million laptops were sold in the U.S. only in 2012. The number is far greater for 2013 which suggests that laptop replacement is on the rise as well. As newer and faster versions of laptops are introduced in the market, individuals and companies start replacing the old ones. Since the old laptops become unwanted, they are thrown away in trash which eventually ends up in landfills. This not only wastes countless valuable materials used in making the laptops, but the improper disposal also exposes our environment to hazardous substances.
