Happy New Year, from us here at Palmetto Tech Rescue! Many of us are making resolutions to spend less money and live more sustainably as we begin a new year. Repairing your electronics rather than replacing them is one approach to achieve both of those objectives.
Have you ever considered how much energy and materials are needed to produce new electronics? The United Nations estimates that 8% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions come from the production of electronic devices!
We can dramatically lower our carbon footprint by repairing our electronics rather than tossing them out and buying new ones.
Additionally, repairing your gadgets lessens the amount of e-waste that is dumped in landfills and supports local companies. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, only around 25% of e-waste in the US gets effectively recycled. We can greatly minimize the quantity of e-waste that ends up in landfills and protect the environment by repairing our electronics.
The benefits of repair extend beyond saving the environment. You can also save your wallet. Avoid paying for the steep initial purchase price, by having your electronics repaired at a fraction of the cost.
The average cost of a game console repair is roughly $100-120, as opposed to the typical cost of a next gen console, which is about $500. That is more than $380 in savings!
So if you want to save money and do your part for the environment in the new year, think about having your damaged gadgets fixed at Palmetto Tech Rescue. We’re here to help you keep all your gadgets running smoothly and efficiently.
