Americans dispose of 416,000 cell phones per day, and only 15 to 20 percent of electronic waste is recycled.

Dear Federal Trade Commissioners,

We have a growing electronic waste problem, driven in part by the aggressive measures companies use to make our stuff impossible to repair. Companies design glued-together and unfixable products, use software to block repairs and otherwise make it challenging to fix our stuff.

We want to add our voice in support of the FTC taking immediate action to support Americans’ Right to Repair.
