Nov 9 - Electronics: Designed for the Dump!?

 

From the creator of the The Story of Stuff, Annie Leonard takes on the electronics industry’s "design for the dump" mentality and emphasizes on the need to "make them[electronics] safe, make them last, and take them back".

The 8-minute video was co-produced with the Electronics TakeBack Coalition - a national coalition of environmental and public health organizations and Free Range Studios. The Story of Electronics adheres to the stick figure drawings in the Story of Stuff to tell the story of the "planned obsolescence" that products designed to be replaced as quickly as possible - and its often hidden consequences for workers, the environment and us.
