July 22, 2022

At 4THBIN, we believe the summertime should be the best of both worlds - environmentally friendly and fun! This summer, we will be participating in the seasonal activities that the summertime brings, while still honoring our commitment to creating a sustainable environment.

4THBIN Ocean and plastic


The temperature isn’t the only thing rising this summer. Global electronic and plastic waste volumes are making waves, and not the type you see at the beach. Like e-waste, plastic is a significant pollutant and threat to our Earth and its inhabitants. Both e-waste and plastic waste are leading global pollution producers, and there is no better time to take action against them than this summer.

4THBIN did you know plastic


Despite 400 million tonnes of plastic waste accumulating yearly, only 9% of all plastic is recycled. Found in nondurable products such as plastic bags and utensils, plastic waste adversely affects wildlife, wildlife habitat, and humans. Plastic accumulating in our oceans and on our beaches has become a global concern, as it accounts for 80% of all marine debris found from surface waters to deep-sea sediments. During the summer months, the devastating effects of plastic pollution are the most prominent, as the number of plastic waste increases by 40% throughout the season. Tourists across the globe witness the tragedies of plastic pollution firsthand when traveling to coastal areas, as a majority of plastic waste in the oceans washes up on beaches, where it eventually degrades into long-lasting particles or is eaten by wildlife. Researchers believe by 2050, plastic will likely outweigh all fish in the sea.

Considering that 14 million tons of plastic end up in the ocean each year, and e-waste accounts for 70% of toxic waste in our landfills, it is time for all of us to do our part in reducing our environmental footprint this summer. Getting a handle on your plastic waste contribution is simple, as minor changes such as avoiding single-use plastics, choosing paper over plastic whenever possible, and buying in bulk to reduce packaging waste are fantastic ways to minimize your plastic footprint! As for your end-of-life and obsolete electronics, 4THBIN is here to handle all your e-waste needs this summer and beyond! Whether you are cleaning out your closet to make more room for beach equipment or looking to securely and sustainably dispose of unwanted electronic assets before your next vacation - 4THBIN is happy to help!





We want you to enjoy all of the fun that the summer has to offer. Let us take the stress of device disposal off your hands and allow you to experience a fun-filled, secure, and sustainable summer! We are here to help ensure that your summer electronic recycling needs are handled responsibly and sustainably. We invite you to join us on our mission to take action against electronic and plastic waste this summer!
