Abstract

In this era, where the development and advancement is going at a great pace and every now and then new gadgets appear in the market, it is very difficult to stick to the old ones. There is a great competition going on between all the mobile companies and they try their best to give new features to their mobile phone so that they get attracted and buy them. So a million dollar question is: what to do with the old mobile phones? Throw them? No, obviously not! Mobile phones have barium, lead, mercury, cadmium, chromium, selenium, antimony, PVC, bromine etc. in them. So when the mobile phones are disposed of then there is a possibility of leakage in their batteries. This will pollute the land and can also enter rivers and becoming a great danger for human life. Aquatic life may also be disturbed. So it is very necessary to plan for a “Greener Mobile Phone” which will be able to reduce its toxicity to some extent.
