ABOUT THE FILM

More About E-Waste from Producers at GOOD Magazine

If the transition from 386 to 486 resonates loudly in your heartstrings, then you have some idea of how far we’ve come the past fifteen years or so. Of course, the seemingly exponential acceleration of tech improvements presents a fair share of problems — problems that extend beyond your feelings of inadequacy that can’t be quelled until you get your hands on the next big thing.

Electric waste, or e-waste, is cause for serious environmental concern. Every time someone makes a device run faster, smoother or more efficiently, a whole line of products becomes obsolete. We, however, hope that once that happens, those items won’t become environmental burdens.
