4 REDUCE Industry-wide weight reduction by product category 2009-2014 reduced by 59 reduced by 44 reduced by 51 reduced by 57 reduced by 36 reduced by 48 reduced by 40 reduced by 52 reduced by 33 Computer Monitor 22 Television 19 Television 27 Television 50 Cordless Telephone Cellular Telephone Desktop Computer Portable Computer Desktop Copiers Printers Multi-function Devices Overall weight of electronics products have been dramatically reduced since the start of the Ontario WEEE program. For example computer monitors by as much as 59. By reducing the size of microprocessors manufacturers are able to produce products that weigh less. Additionally products have been designed with multiple functions. For example the entire computer built around a display. Increases in storage capacity and multifunctional devices have contributed to miniturization of devices. As new technology trends continue categories emerge. For example 2014 saw the growth of the phablet a category depicted by smartphones with screens over 5 but smaller than a 10 computer screen. Reference EPSC 2014 Design for the Environment Report
