<![CDATA[´╗┐THE STORY OF ELECTRONICS]]>Sat, 10 Dec 2016 08:00:00 GMThttp://ecoclues.com/blog/the-story-of-electronicsThe Story of Electronics,  employs the Story of Stuff style to explore the high-tech revolution's collateral damage—25 million tons of e-waste and counting, poisoned workers and a public left holding the bill.
 
  Host Annie Leonard takes viewers from the mines and factories where our gadgets begin to the horrific backyard recycling shops in China where many end up. The film concludes with a call for a green 'race to the top' where designers compete to make long-lasting, toxic-free products that are fully and easily recyclable.

Our production partner on the electronics film is the Electronics TakeBack Coalition, which promotes green design and responsible recycling in the electronics industry."
