The Story of Electronics

The Story of Stuff Project has released a new animated film, The Story of Electronics, hosted by Annie Leonard, the creator of the hit viral video The Story of Stuff. The film takes on the electronics industry about e-Waste. It argues for “product take back” and for companies to manufacture less toxic, more easily recyclable and longer lasting products. It’s an entertaining but pointed way to get the message across to us gadget geeks …

Did she mention “take back” laws in South Africa? Er …. no.

    She did not mention take back laws in SA as we don’t have any! The Waste Management Act of 2009 is very weak on this subject. Any e-waste recycling taking place at present is purely voluntary and is not legislated or policed sufficiently. Significantly more needs to be done in this area.
