MUST WATCH: The E-Waste Mega Dump of Agbogbloshie, Accra - Ghana - Final Cut

2개월 전


What are we doing to our world? How can we as a society allow countries like the USA and Germany ship their electronic trash to the Agbogbloshie Electronic Waste Dump where people ruining their health to recycle it. They call it "green" recycling but I'd say this recycling is anything but green, it's poisonous!

Politicians and the industries love to give the consumer the responsibilities to take care of packaging and what they do with broken electronics. It's time to force politicians to put that responsibility back to the companies producing all the plastics and all the e-trash (not to mention air pollution). Do you think the food industry would wrap everything in plastic if they're the one who have to recycle it in a sustainable way? Do you think companies would produce gadgets which are supposed to break after just a year or two, when they have to take them back and recycle them in a correct way? Do you think if the industry would pollute our air if they have to remove the same amount of CO2 out of the air they produce. NO! Of course not - as long as they can do it, they will.

So if you produce it - Reduce it! TEST

Oh boy, I am speechless. This is heartbreaking. I was shocked when I first found out that some western countries send their trash to Asia and Africa. Of course they don´t have technologies to get rid of it ecologically. This whole concept is crazy.

The crazy thing that we for example in Europe drop off our electronics at a recycling spot and think we're doing something great :(

Urgh. Humans. Will we realise how stupid we are before it's too late? I'm guessing probably not.

They probably first get out the gold parts before shipping! I hope this doesn't happen in Holland! Is there any way i can check that?
