    Japan is thinking about forging Tokyo Olympic medals from recycled smartphones
    E-waste is a big deal and some feel that it would be a good idea to recycle the materials and put them to use in other products.

    One such product might be Olympic medals from the upcoming Tokyo Olympic Games. Nothing is finalized yet, but the president of ReNet feels that recycling the medals found inside of thrown away electronics (like smartphones) would be optimal.

    Previously the London Olympic medals had been made from chocolate.

    Recycled smart-phone doesn't sound quite so tasty though.
