Every year, the world produces more electronic waste (e-waste) than the last due to advancements in technology that shorten the average life spans of gadgets and electronics. According to the Global E-waste Monitor 2020 report, the world generated about 53.6 million metric tons (Mt) of e-waste in 2019, a 21-percent jump from 44.4 Mt in 2014. It is projected to increase to 74.7 Mt. by 2030. What makes e-waste worse compared to most other types of waste is that, if not correctly disposed of, it can release dangerous chemicals like lead, mercury, and lithium, which are toxic to the environment, most especially to humans. Exposure to these chemicals can lead to life-threatening complications such as poisoning, immune system disorders, and even cancer, to name a few. Hence, it is essential to dispose of e-waste responsibly and in an organized manner. Not only will this help ensure human safety and health, but it will also help minimize the negative impact of its disposal on the environment.

A Pet for 2014?

Last year when we're supposed to adopt a pup from my dear friend. But unfortunately, the pup died before we get hold of it. Plus, I just gave birth to Moirah that time, maybe it's not yet time to have a pet those months. 

But now, I am thinking of having one for pet now. I don't know if my husband will allow an additional member of the family. 

That means additional budget for the food consumption, accessories and for hygiene also. Plus I have to consider putting a patio dog door too!

I also have to consider if my kids will be ok with having a pet around the house. :)
