The Story of Stuff Project - RESPONSE
My Stuff has a Life
Our stuff has a life cycle. It is made, it is used, it is discarded.
Technology is an interesting advancement - but in its path it leaves a wake of e-waste.
How do we reduce
People need to know that their decisions can help reduce the problem of ewaste and the harm it does to the environment and people.
Education is the starting point towards reducing e-waste.
Is it really time for an upgrade? Or am I being being sucked into a sale?
Think before you upgrade.
What is the most environmentally responsible way to get rid of my old device? Recycle? Sell for it to be reused? Give it away?
If your tech breaks why not try to fix it to extend it's life and to save yourself some money as well?
