When you look at the stacked up pile of old television, video game consoles, computers, cellphones, etc., you think that a trash dumpster is where they should go right ? Wrong. A trash can will not make them disappear “magically”. It is the beginning of a pipeline that leads to a local landfill, a giant e-waste scrapyard in China or a slum in Ghana.
“Remember that when you throw something ‘away,’ it doesn’t just disappear. There’s no magical place called ‘away’.”
