Smart phone manufacturers use metallic coatings for luster and shine to attract the customer. If the apparent look is made to look appealing it would definitely increase the sales of a particular model.
The problem with the use of precious metals in smart phones is that it becomes an indispensable part of our ground water drinkable systems.
Recycling of Smartphone debris is expensive so most of the E-waste is dumped in waste disposal sites.
The metallic part of the phone erodes away along with rain waters to penetrate beyond the surface of earth to become a part of natural drinkable water resource.
This is extremely dangerous when the stats say that out of all the available water, less than 1 percent water is fit for drinking.
Most of us may have had a glimpse of African water crisis, where people have to travel many a miles before they are able to collect water. Many of the water resources are shared both by humans and animals.
Smartphone are leading to a further crisis situation as over 2 billion people own a mobile phone device.
A smart phone device is not used for more than a year per person globally and is replaced by a newer version.
This is irritating as our globe is heavily polluted, global warming is showing its signs, water resources are depleting, and natural catastrophes are more in frequency and intensity.
Love and lust for newer brands of smart phones, every now and thing, just for recreational purpose is polluting our water resources and aggravating the health of our environment.
