Have you thought of how to safely dispose of counterfeit products?

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Counterfeit products may well be a never ending story of troublemaking.

Usually, we think of us getting conned into buying fake products at an unjustified cost. Getting ripped off, quite simply.

But that's not even the start of it all. The start was the manufacturing, most probably in sweatshops – but that´s another story.

And it's definitely not the end of it.

Unsafe disposal of counterfeit items

If you don't care or bother about manufacturing the genuine thing, how likely are you to bother about using the genuine materials and components?

So how can you trust that it's not unsafe for you or for the environment – during use or after.

Not even when they have reached their end-of-life (which probably comes sooner than for the genuine item).

In other words, counterfeit items create problems even when we dispose of them, irrespective of if we know them to be fake or not.

On top of all the obvious wrongs and troubles, counterfeiting may mess with our environment too, ours and that of generations to come *sigh*

How would you dispose of a product you know to be counterfeit?

🔵 Same way as the genuine item?

🔵 Landfill?
