Toxic E-waste in Landfill
While power cables, cords, and wires get thrown away into the trash by multitudes, our environment soaks them up. A hundred years don’t have to pass in order to see the effects of e-waste on land, water and living things.
Every year, smartphone cable chargers produce over hundred thousand tons of waste, and billions of cell phone batteries get thrown into the trash.
They leak lead and mercury into our landfill and add to the list of major global concerns.
Going Wireless Creates Less Trash
If everyone switched to wireless technology, we would lessen toxic waste from electrical cords and help the environment of fish and sea in potentially tremendous ways. We would also decrease the energy consumption going into making cables and wires in the first place, and have less reason to create more trash.
Mass-Scale Adoption of Wireless Charging
Should wireless charging be everywhere, (studios, hospitals, restaurants, schools, airports, etc.) this would change the entirety of hand-held device recharging experience.

Rather than mass producing battery charging cables and cords, a good quality rechargeable power bank like the Prelude or an enduring wireless charging pad like the Futura X is a better solution to the traditional wired charging.
Wireless Charging as Solution
No more losing or throwing away broken cords, attempting to fix exposed wires, or going through the mental anguish of detangling and carrying them around.
All we'd do is grab and go. Wireless charging eliminates cords which we all throw away and replace in many points of our lives.
