Adults spend about $1,200 dollars on electronics each year. $600 billion dollars are wasted on projects people could do without electronics. Adults spend about 17% of their monthly mortgage or rent if they go over their limit. Some of it is caused by kids/teenagers/adults are using internet without WiFi. In 2014 people throw away about 92 billion pounds, of electronics. Out of the 92 billion pounds $50 billion dollars could be recycled material. How much money are you wasting on technology?
