How E-waste harms our environment?
A growing problem: Electronic waste may be defined as discarded computers, office electronic equipment, entertainment devices, mobile phones, television sets and refrigerators. Due to rapid changes in technology, media and falling prices there is a fast-growing surplus of e-waste around the globe.
Toxic Chemicals: The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that only 15-20% of e-waste is recycled, the rest of these electronics go directly into landfills and incinerators. E-waste contains toxic chemicals such as mercury and CFC’s that have been linked to cancer and harms the environment.
How Just Junk helps?
We recycle: Recycling is the most effective solution to the growing e-waste problem. Various materials, including metals and plastics, can be recovered for future uses. This way, natural resources are conserved, and air and water pollution caused by hazardous disposal is avoided.
We reuse: Some components can be reused in assembling new computer products, while others are reduced to metals that can be reused for construction, flatware, batteries, and even jewelry.
We dispose safely: harmful materials and components that cannot be reused or recycled are safely disposed of by our hazardous waste division.
Contribute to ethical recycling by dropping off all your e-waste at our Claremont branch or call us 021 80 111 00 for collection.
Established in early 2007, JUST-JUNK! has become a well-known and respected brand in the waste solutions and logistics industry. We are conscious of the environment around us and make every effort to recycle most of the junk we collect. Re- usable junk such as clothes, food, furniture, toys etc. are then passed on to various charities and hospitals, as we also believe in making a difference in our community. We also have two second hand stores in Cape Town where we sell furniture, appliances, decorative items, art pieces and much more!
Lighting is important.
It can make you look older, jaundiced and very aware of your mortal status. It can make you feel like you are about to be opened up and operated on, or make you feel like you are living in a moldy cave.
Flip the coin, and now you feel like you are the most gorgeous and desired person on this planet, or that you can read that recipe without having to squint like a mole. (Do moles squint?)
Lighting can influence the mood of a room, the lighting fixture itself can express a mood! As with the furniture you select, the style of the lighting fixtures should be suitable in mood to the rest of the decor.
What we want to create is harmony – forgive me if I’m getting too yogic on you! You will be happy to hear however, that harmony does not mean that one has to use the same type of lamp and colour in every corner!
In fact variety while making sure that it all looks like it belongs together will help you avoid monotony and achieve that sought after ambiance and mood! For example, you may have a living room with two floor lamps, one on either side of the sofa – but this might be a little boring. To make the lighting more interesting, and to add some variety, try adding a wall sconce and a desk lamp across the room.
Most importantly, don’t forget to make it your own – whether you want to re-use antique spoon ladders, infuse balloons with fluorescent light (break glow sticks and use the liquid!), or re-use antique bottles!
