E-Hazards: Manifest Tragedy [Infographic]

E-Hazards: Manifest Tragedy [Infographic] | JOIN SCOOP.IT AND FOLLOW ME ON SCOOP.IT | Scoop.it

As technology continues to progress and the lifespan of consumer electronics continues to shorten, there is a significant problem that society is left to ponder: e-waste. The steady influx of new technologies being adopted by more people presents the growing challenge of what to do with the old electronics.

When these electronics end up in landfills and are improperly recycled, they jeopardize the well-being of the individuals involved and of the environment around them. It would be naïve to think the problems caused by these obsolete electronics stop with the country producing the waste or that it is a contained problem.


This infographic explores the shrinking product cycles of electronic devices, the mounting challenge of hazardous e-waste, and how various governments, schools and professionals are becoming involved.
