"There are no easy solutions to the many enmeshed challenges of e-waste, but by designing for reuse, repair, refurbishing and recycling, we can make real progress," reports Ed Boyd for TriplePundit.

Modular design, considering end-of-life and upcycling are vital components of sustainable manufacturing.

But even items designed without these factors in mind can be professionally refurbished and resold. Design should be retrospective, as well as forward-thinking.
