#KDE already joined 100+ organizations supporting a right to install any #software on any device. Now I and others are signing the #OpenLetter to show our support too.

Join us!

Let's fight the #eWaste 'tsunami' with over 4500 Eiffel towers worth generated a year (see comment).

With this right, millions of devices can stay in use and out of landfills and new devices aren't produced & shipped unnecessarily!

Blueprint of the Eiffel Tower by one of its main engineers, Maurice Koechlin (ca. 1884)
Some e-waste statistics:

- "fastest-growing waste stream" (World Economic Forum)
- In 2016: 44.7 million tonnes generated = 4500 Eiffel towers
- By 2021: 57.4 million
- Less than 20% is collected/recycled
- 70% of landfill toxic waste is e-waste
- Production of smartphone = 80+% of CO2 emissions over a device's lifetime

When the right to repair includes software we can fight software-driven hardware obsolescence and bring these numbers down!
