It’s so easy to purchase a sleek TV, the latest mobile phone or a brand-new laptop. Most people don’t even stop to think if they really need them. Before buying anything, ask yourself whether you really need it. If you’re buying a new phone even though your old one is in good working condition, why not simply upgrade the software? You can repair your old laptop instead of buying a new one. Being a sensible consumer will go a long way in productively managing your household’s e-waste.
