Ewaste

I was dealing with some e-waste at work today, got me thinking about how big of a problem it is.  In school someone had done a presentation about it and talked about the city of Guiyu – where a whole lot of our old computers and tech stuff goes to die – and kill.  I found this picture that is heart wrenching – didn’t want to steal it from the lady who took it (Natalie Behring) so you’ll have to go to her flickr site (go to the “ewaste” set) – looks like she’s got lots of good stuff to look at anyway, including some really nice shots from the Olympics.  There is much to consider the next time you throw your electronics in the trash…
