Did you know? 2020 Olympic Medals Made From E-waste!

Tokyo 2020 Olympic Medals Made From E-waste With less than a year to go before the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, the Organizing Committee (TOCOG) has finally unveiled the design of the medals that will grace the necks of all 5,000 winners.


The committee sought to collect around 70 pounds of gold, 7,700 pounds of silver, and 4,850 pounds of bronze—all from various donated electronic gadgets—to fashion approximately 5,000 medals for next year's Games. The Japanese government will further recycle any source materials that aren't used to make the medals.
