Environmental Benefits

With the typical lifespan of a computer being four to five years, our society is generating “20 to 50 million metric tons of electronic waste annually” as highlighted in a 2020 New York Post article on refurbished computers.

Schools can avoid “contributing over and over again to the world’s fastest growing waste stream” as mentioned in a 2019 Time Magazine article on E-Waste. Today, less than 25% of electronic waste is recycled in the U.S. The vast majority ends up in landfills, potentially posting environmental risk as such hardware contains harmful elements such as mercury and beryllium.

Rather than buying new devices and further contributing to the problem, schools can purchase Second-Life Hardware to help reduce the constantly revolving door from manufacturing to landfills.

Interested in New Hardware?
Throwing a bunch of technology and furniture into a classroom straight out of the box doesn’t actually make it an integrated learning space. STS can also help you build a thoroughly modern, connected learning space when you work with our preferred vendors for Hardware, A/V Tools, Infrastructure and Connected Devices.
