Plastic is everywhere, including in our electronics. When a device breaks, it’s natural to want to buy a replacement right away. Before purchasing a new replacement gadget, ask yourself the following:

-Is my current setup under warranty?

-Can I repair or upgrade what I already have instead of buying brand new?

-Can I buy a refurbished product?

-Where do I take e-waste in my community?

These can help you determine whether you need a brand new device – or if there is a way to fix what you’ve got!

Mend, Lend, Don’t Spend: We’re talking about using what you have! Find creative ways to reuse an old item in a new way.

With this action in mind, take the Plastic Challenge!
