Question 1
1. What is eWaste?
eWaste as postulated by Liddie and Whyte refers to discarded electric and electronic
devices. Mostly, eWaste consists of discarded electronics or electric devices that have
some drawbacks to people or the environment.
2. Think back on your own personal electronic purchasing habits. How often do you buy a
new piece of electronic equipment or new phone? Give a few sentences justification for
this frequency (there is no right or wrong answer, just an exploration of our habits).
Usually, I buy a new personal electronic after three to four months. Mainly, this buying
habit is driven by the need to keep up with trends. For example, should apple launch a
new iPhone, I will most likely discard the one that I have to go buy the new one. As well,
this buying habit is cushioned by the availability of funds to purchase the said electronic.
In addition, should a new fancy electronic device ‘hit’ the market there is a likelihood I
will purchase it just to ‘toy’ with it and to keep up with the technology world.
3. What would it take for you to change your electronic purchasing habits? Be specific.
Now that I have learnt on the underlying effects of eWaste due to uncontrolled numbers
of discarded electronics, most likely I will check my purchasing habits. However, a
change in the above noted purchasing habit is close to unlikely as new devices keep
cropping up in the market.
