These days it's cheaper to throw that broken DVD player, cellphone or TV out and buy a new one. This "replace-rather-than-repair" mentality is polluting the planet with electronic waste. What can you do to reduce your e-waste?

Guiyu city in Southeastern China = environmental disaster death and disease for people and animals.
Unfortunately, China does not want to understand the damage he is causing to the earth.

This article is very important ..... Consumers want to do business with companies who are demonstrably good with corporate responsibility and dealing with e-waste.

Thx u Cher

I am thinking seriously to open a project to refurbish old electronics using young students of thechnical schools as workers ( in my country they should work "social service" at the end of school) and offer them very cheap to people that won't have the chance to get a new apliance.

Unfortunately we live in a consumer society, where discarded electronics that still work perfectly.
