Indians are best known for their love of chai and good morning spam messages. And off lately, their habit of disposing e-waste ignorantly through local kabadiwalas is causing serious concerns amongst environmentalists.
When local kabadiwalas collect e-waste, they dismantle the electronic devices ignorantly, of which the useless material ends up in landfills, where e-waste leaks hazardous chemicals such as beryllium, barium, nickel etc. into both the air and soil, creating an extremely unhealthy environment.
The #SpamForGood movement borrows a leaf from these Indians’ habit of spamming with good morning messages, and spams them back with educational messages about safe disposal of e-waste.
