The Unspoken Problem That is eWaste | You Made This (#YMT)

Constant reminders of environmental degradation push us to consider actions like utilizing paper straws, litter cleanup, water conservation, and adhering to the reduce-reuse-recycle mantra. Yet, eWaste, a subtle form of pollution, often goes unnoticed. #YMT introduces a creative approach towards solving this issue: "You Made This".

YMT fights eWaste via public engagement and art. YMT promotes proper disposal of eWaste, the fastest-growing waste source. Through art collaborations, YMT encourages a circular economy of refurbished electronics. YMT's mission is to shift consumer habits, prevent landfill eWaste, and advocate for a greener future.

Imagine an overlooked issue, one that grows in the shadows of our ever-advancing Electronic Revolution. This issue is eWaste, and we believe the solution begins with individuals like you. #YouMadeThis


As technology and its associated conveniences expand, so does eWaste. Each launch of a new tech gadget renders countless devices redundant, leading to a surge of discarded technology or eWaste. #YMT


These outdated devices don't just disappear into the ether. Instead, they wind up in landfills, contributing to global pollution and releasing harmful toxins into the environment. #YouMadeThis


To grasp the magnitude of the problem, consider this: eWaste accounts for a staggering 70% of all toxic waste worldwide. Clearly, it's a serious concern. #YMT


To address this, we at #YMT, a dedicated non-profit organization, have devised a unique solution that merges eWaste management with art. We use discarded electronics to create provocative art installations, sparking change, fostering sustainability, and highlighting the potential of a circular economy. #YouMadeThis
