Sustainability in the Olympics

After a year long delay, the Summer Olympics are here! This year the games are held in Tokyo and several surrounding cities in Japan, including Fukushima and Yokohama. The Summer Olympics officially began July 23 with the opening ceremony and end August 8 with the closing ceremony. The Olympics typically draw together more than 11,000 athletes and 25,000 journalists from more than 200 countries. This year, the Summer Games are rumored to be unlike ever before. Tokyo has put an emphasis on sustainability, turning an eye to the telecommunications and electronics industries.

The Unique Medal Design of the Olympics

But what does the telecommunications industry have to do with the Olympics? This year, the medals in Tokyo are made from recycled cellphones and other electronics, helping to combat e-waste pollution and global warming. Recycling has been a key part of the sustainability efforts of the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, with both the medals and podium being made from used materials.

The Rise of E-Waste Pollution

This public display of sustainability is incredibly important because it brings the e-waste epidemic to the public eye. The volume of e-waste has been rising significantly over the past ten years. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is estimated that between 20 and 50 million tons of e-waste gets generated worldwide annually. In that, there are roughly 416,000 cellphones disposed of each day. This not only pollutes the earth but also pollutes the surrounding air and water with toxicity. The biggest thing we can do to limit e-waste is to properly recycle or refurnish or technology.
