Knowing what to do with old electronics can feel super confusing sometimes. If properly disposed or recycled, the metals in electronic waste can be salvaged and reclaimed. Yay for recycling ♻️! However, e-waste can contain nasty toxics that can harm human health. If improperly disposed, it can end up in landfills halfway around the world, or worse, in the hands of a child worker collecting scrap metal 😢. ⁣ ⁣ Make sure your old electronics gets into the right hands! Our number one tip for safely disposing e-waste is to use an established trade-in program. Many companies (including @apple, @target, @walmart, @bestbuy, and @samsungmobile) even offer cash back or gift cards for your old phone- cha-ching 💰!

Foil containers are also relatively safer. 2) The next best options are plastic containers that are recyclable and marked with the number 2 or the number 5. These plastics are safer and are usually recyclable in most places. 3) Styrofoam is bad. Try to stay away. It leaves yucky chemicals in your food and is horrible for the environment. 4) Those brown cardboard-y bowls that look natural like they should be better for you, but aren't. They basically all have PFAS (like Teflon) chemicals in them. Don't forget to take a picture of your plastic free lunch #BHchallenge .
