We managed to salvage the old hard drive from the laptop that broke down a couple of weeks ago. Got a case for it and will now be using it as a 3rd backup drive of our work!
Usually when your tech breaks down the majority of the components are still working correctly. It's always good to reuse components when you can, it reduces e-waste which is much harder to recycle and you get free components for your next projects.
فى أبريل ٢٠١٩ نُظِم ماراثون لندن فى العاصمة الإنجليزية زى كل سنة.
ولكن الجديد السنة دى هو إنهم اهتموا يبرزوا اهتمامهم بالبيئة وكيفية المحافظة عليها من النفايات البلاستيكية عن طريق إنهم استبدلوا استخدامهم لزجاجات المياه البلاستيكية بكبسولات مائية يمكن لكل عدّاء مضغها لشرب الماء اللى بداخلها وممكن يبلعها بعد مضغها عادى جداً، وممكن كمان يرميها بعد ما يشرب المياه اللى فيها حيث إنها صُممت إنها تتحلل فى خلال ٦ أسابيع فقط بدل المدة التي تستغرقها الزجاجات البلاستيكية العادية للتحلل اللي هي ٤٥٠ سنة، مما أنقذنا من آلاف الزجاجات البلاستيكية عديمة الفائدة. .
محتاجين مبادرات كتير شبه كده فى مصر، قولولنا مقترحاتكم من خلال التعليقات من أجل بيئة أنظف وأنقى.
Here’s the little sister to the necklace I posted a few days ago. I can’t really make them smaller or it becomes hard to tell it’s circuit board. This one is just shy of three inches wide so it shows off the 🌈 without being too extravagant. *

Louise Pearce (1885-1959)
Pathologist at the Rockefeller Institute who helped develop a treatment for African sleeping sickness. She, along with fellow pathologist Wade Hampton Brown, and two chemists, developed tryparsamide. The Rockefeller Institute sent Pearce to the Belgium Congo in 1920 “trusting her vigorous personality to carry out an assignment none too easy for a woman physician and not without its dangers”. For her service, Pearce received the order of the Crown of Belgium, and in 1953, the Royal Order of the Lion. Pearce also studied syphilis, for which tryparsamide was standard treatment until penicillin replaced it. With Brown, she discovered and developed the Brown-Pearce tumor, systematically studied syphilis in rabbits, explored how a virus might spread cancer, and researched immune reactions to rabbit pox.

Designed with the circular economy in mind...
It's #CircularEconomyWeek , so what better time to tell you about how we've designed the Thrivve lid to make sure it stays out of landfill.
The way we design and make electronics needs to change. You may have seen footage of landfills overflowing with electronic waste in countries like Ghana, and we know that our current levels of consumption and waste are hurting the planet.
But it doesn't have to be this way...
The current system doesn't work for businesses, people or the environment.
We take resources from nature to make products, which we use, and, when we no longer want them, throw them away. Take-make-waste. This is called a linear economy.
Did you know that waste and pollution are largely a result of the way we design things?
80% of environmental impacts are determined at the design stage, which means we can change the system and make more planet-friendly products.
By changing our mindset to view waste as a design flaw and harnessing new materials and technologies, we can ensure that waste and pollution are not created in the first place.
The circular economy "designs out" waste, and we're taking steps to do just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Thrivve is the first hydration tracking bottle that's built to last and be repaired.
The lid is easily taken apart in segments and can be replaced over time. So when the battery no longer holds a charge, (and let's be honest, this happens to all electronics eventually), it can be replaced and recycled - saving the whole device from needing to be disposed of.
Self-care and planet-care are two sides of the same coin so putting this effort in at the design stage is part of our commitment to creating a world of healthy people, healthy planet!

Are we paying attention to local #waste in our communities?
With the rate we are using electronics it is possible we wil have the same problem again: Too many old electronics and batteries lying around wasting away harming the environment. #ewasterecycling
Your concern for a sustainable environment goes a long way because it often invokes action! Visit our website and #recycle with us if you believe you too are responsible for your environment. Link in bio. #CleanToGreen

This is what they said about this authentic art object! Since I believe every word that they stated is all important. So, I am going to put it based on the original statements 🤗

Day 1 of the NAST Street Science Fair at the Jawalakhel Fair Grounds. We teamed up with Nepal Polymer Institute to teach students and other fair attendants the importance of recycling and properly disposing electronic and electric waste. Here we have our Chief Operating Officer Pankaj Panjiyar with Nepal Polymer Institute Intern Bhuwan Chalise teaching students about the hazards of dumping e-waste.
We will be at the fair from 10am to 6pm tomorrow so if you have any e-waste, we would be happy to accept them. #ewaste#ewasterecycling#recycleewaste
E-waste is the form of pollution caused by the discarded electrical or electronic equipments (EEE), which is the fasted growing type of pollution in the world.
Electronics are mainly disposed in landfills which are hazardous to the environment and in turn they are hazardous to our health. They contain toxins such as lead, mercury, chromium, cadmium, etc. which eventually gets leached into our soil and water, causing great harm to our ecosystem.
We can either upcycle our equipments or we can recycle them by dropping them off at @ecoservlb

While most people might argue that at least there is someone #recycling#ewaste , few know that informal channels are often inadequate. Improper dismantling and open burning practices followed in the informal trade have adverse impacts on the environment and all life that surrounds it. #CleanToGreen

فى تجربة شيّقة ومثيرة لللإهتمام، قام الألمانى مارتين فرانك (يعمل كمحرر فى جريدة FAZ.net).
بقضاء أربع أسابيع بدون استخدام مواد بلاستيكية فى حياته اليومية على قدر الإمكان. .
فمثلاً لم يعد يستخدم أكواب القهوة الورقية وظل يشربها فى فنجان زجاجى، ظل يطلب مشروباته فى أى مطعم بدون أى شفاطة بلاستيكية، ظل يشترى الخبز من المخبز بدلاً من السوبر ماركت، اشترى اللبن فى عبوات زجاجية بدلاً من البلاستيكية، ظل يستخدم الموس للحلاقة بدلاً من الشفرات البلاستيكية، فرشاة أسنان مصنوعة من الخشب ومعجون أسنان فى عبوة زجاجية وليست بلاستيكية كما هو المعتاد.
هذا بالإضافة لعدم تغليف الخضار والفاكهة فى شنط بلاستيكية بل شنطة واحدة من القماش كانت تكفيه للتسوق. .
الحقيقة أنها تجربة مثيرة وجميلة وكان الغرض منها هو إثبات أننا بإمكاننا التخلى عن استهلاكنا للمواد البلاستيكية بشكل كبير وسهل ومؤثر فى نفس الوقت. .
كام واحد مننا يقدر يقوم بتجربة زى دى لمدة شهر؟ 🌎 ♻️ .

Every effort taken today will give us a better tomorrow.
Here's how we celebrated World Environment Day by collecting all the E-waste from The Summit Business Park, Andheri to ensure it's safe and responsible recycling.
Even the richest, most educated countries making such a simple mistake highlights the need for proper education around #ewaste . #CleanToGreen ’s efforts in India continue to equip all stakeholders involved with the right information to assist formal #recycling .

The @wecaredxb Ramadan drive is finished, thank you so much to our RWA community for their active participation. ♻️
The amazing students from this great initiative nailed their challenge because they collected more than 10 tons of E-waste! Congratulations Riva and all your team for your efforts towards the environment!
Ewaste is actually electric or electronic items, that contain precious metals and materials. They need a lot of energy to be mined/produced, and if dumped in the landfills they can contaminate the soil and air with poisonous substances.
When you recycle them, @enviroserveuae will extract all this metal and material and prepare them to be reused. It saves energy, and Earth ressources.
At RWA the Ewaste, batteries boxes remain in the main security desk for further collection throughout the year.
You will always make more money reselling electronics vs scrapping them. This phone is worth about $0.50 in scrap. By reselling it, I made 56X more in profit compared to scrapping it for precious metals.
I ragazzi che contribuiscono al nostro progetto sono fondamentali, sono loro il vero motore attivo che permette al progetto di funzionare.
Niente ragazzi, niente laboratori gratuiti alle scuole.
Per fortuna ne abbiamo tanti, sempre disponibili, sorridenti, con tanta voglia di aiutare.
In queste foto ne sono inquadrati solo pochi, intenti a montare un laboratorio di una scuola elementare, ma dietro al progetto ce ne sono tanti altri senza i quali i computer non sarebbero stati preparati.
Ewaste collection happening in the village of Saligoa at the Panchayat building on the 9th. Ewaste can be incredibly hazardous for us and add many pollutants to our surrounding environment when not disposed of correctly so please take any ewaste you have to this drive. #wastemanagement#ewaste#ewasterecycling#reducereuserecycle
