iFix, the all-things gizmo teardown group, asks you not to recycle in honor of Earth Day as last year, 1.75 billion phones were sold to consumers around the world. By the end of 2013, another 240 million tablets and 207 million PCs will be produced and shipped globally. Making all those fun gizmos has a huge environmental cost. They mention that repair is better than recycling it combined with upgrading extends the life of electronics and keeps things out of landfills, and out of shredders.
