The first international e-waste day

On October 13th, the first international E-Waste Day was held to promote the recycling of electronic equipment worldwide. The goal of the E-Waste Day is to raise public awareness of the recycling of e-waste.

Only 20% of electronic waste is recycled annually worldwide. This means that 40 million tonnes of e-waste will reach landfills or incineration plants. Outdated electronics are also sold to countries with inadequate waste management options even though 66% of the world’s population live in countries where e-waste legislation is in place. This results in the loss of substantial and critical raw materials in the supply chain. Illegal shipments of waste are causing serious health, environmental and social problems.

“Consumers play an important role in the recycling of e-waste. It begins with the right place and the right people for delivering e-waste” said Margus Vetsa, Member of the Management Board of EES-Ringlus.

Prior to E-Waste day, on 12 October, a media excursion was held at the Rahumäe waste station and additionally at the only electronic equipment reprocessing plant in Estonia – WeeRec OÜ.

The International E-Waste Day was launched by the WEEE Forum and their 26 members, involving 40 different organizations in 20 different countries around the world.

New Dacia Duster – International test ride in Riga

Baltic car journalists (Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian) were invited to try the new Dacia Duster in Jurmala, Latvia. The test drives took place on the 13th and 14th of March.

The early spring weather conditions provided challenging driving conditions. It was a great opportunity to see what the new Dacia Duster can do.

Journalists had the opportunity to compare the previous Dacia Duster with the new asphalt road to see how the car’s driving characterics have evolved. The rainy weather and the slippery surface made the comparison even more pronounced.

After two days of hard testing in different conditions and landscapes a conclusion was reached – the new Dacia Duster has maintained a special look and all the right features of the previous model, while improving the off-roading capabilities. The new Dacia Duster has relied on the best of the previous model and has made great improvements in almost all areas while maintaining a shockingly affordable price.
