As they are the backbone of the recycling industry and using e-waste collection and dismantling for their daily sustenance. The informal sector refers to individuals or community enterprises who are involved in the recovery of material and waste management activities that are not necessarily sponsored, financed, recognized, supported, organized, or acknowledged by the formal E-waste authorities. By which we can prevent the precious metals and materials from ending up in landfill and also we’ll defend the people who are working in the informal E-waste sector from the health impacts of those hazardous materials.

Even in a world with major environmental challenges, formal recycling methods are limited. E -waste Social Pvt ltd as a B2B platform for aggregation of e-waste, responsible e-waste management, carbon footprint reduction certification, and fulfillment of EPR and CSR through the value chain.  E Waste Social is helping make it possible to recycle more E waste than ever before and making it transparent , efficient and sustainable . As part of a pioneering collaboration with Ficci Flo Bangalore , we are accelerating the use of e waste into a Mural . E Waste Social with our Founder Iram Maimuna  immediately embraced and ran with the idea, creating a mural that helped bring the outside inside. Its a butterfly which reminds us of “Sustainable Recreation “ The resulting work illustrates the message of an exciting recreation management movement called Sustainable Recreation and clearly articulates love and passion for the recycling. Sustainable recreation is a new way of acting and thinking about how recreation improves lives, communities and the natural world. It engages with the enormous and creative energy of people who care for and benefit from circular economy. This passion for natural resources inspires citizen of the land, creating a relationship in which people recognize the need to protect natural resources  for future generations. The Mural will be completely made out of E waste and would thereby showcase creativity sustainability. It will be showcased on the World E waste Day in Bangalore , India .

Real demand for precious metals, such as copper, gold, silver, platinum, and palladium, rises from their use in industrial applications. The growing need for metals demands the recycling and recovery of precious metals from e-waste. Thus, there is a need to develop “secondary resource markets” that will not only boost recycling but will emerge as a dependable place for ‘recyclers’ to sell the recovered metals & materials (recovered resources) in the open market. Sanshodhan will organize a webinar, and share the details on the topic, on the E-Waste Day, 14 Oct 2021.
