Disinfecting and Sustainability

How to Sanitize Your Phone Sustainably

Another global issue we all need to pay attention to is climate change. The amount of waste we as humans produce each year is frightening. In 2018 the U.S. produced 292.4 million tons of municipal solid waste. And that's only factoring in the U.S.; we have to do better.

Disinfectant wipes are a significant component of unnecessary waste. They are used one time, thrown away, and then they end up in landfills. Big-name companies like Lysol and Clorox use harmful chemicals in their products that affect the environment as well. These chemicals can also be irritants to the skin and eyes. They can also cause headaches.

When someone wants to disinfect their phone, most likely, they will use one of these harmful wipes. They are especially convenient while you are on the go. But what if I told you there were other ways you can disinfect your phone and help the environment.

UV-C Light

The FDA recommends UV-C (Ultraviolet-C) light radiation as a way of disinfection. It can sterilize air, water, and nonporous surfaces. UV-C lights were also used to stop the spread of tuberculosis. We should heavily consider it for disinfecting our phones.
