Large corporations started huge green initiatives recently and tried to decrease carbon footprints. According to a report by the United Nations, the world created e-waste equal to 44.7 million metric tons which are definitely alarming and recycling of that e-waste is the only solution to the current problem.

Apple was very much concerned about the environment since day one but recently they came up with new great ideas and one of which is Daisy which is a purpose-built recycling robot and can recycle 200 iPhones per hour. This robot can amazingly deconstruct any of the 15 previous models of iPhone. This process is not designed within days but actually, it is years’ work as all iPhones were designed in a way that one day it can be recycled easily and with convenience.

All the tech gadgets hold valuable materials which can be used easily after recycling and the important thing is that if you use the right technique then u can extract the maximum.
