Designed For The Dump

"Designed for the Dump" is the theme of The Story of Electronics, a cartoon from the The Story of Stuff Project and the Electronics Takeback Coalition. The video is a breezy but comprehensive tour of the issues inherent in the lifecycles of our e-gear. It would be a good starting point for Green ICT professionals to educate non-technical audiences. Take a look.

There are over 19 billion pieces of edge electronics attached to our global ICT infrastructure.

The Story of Stuff Project also offers Catalog Choice, which we support and use to reduce unwanted paper mail.

We encourage all environmentally-conscious e-media companies and their clients to support green messages with information about the sustainable media production practices used during their creation and distribution.
