The Sombre Truth Of Where Our Discarded Electronic Trash Actually Ends Up
By Loke Shi Ying, 08 Nov 2014
American filmmaker Alex Gorosh was comissioned by electronic recycling company Gizmogul to create a piece of content to invoke a conversation about where our unwanted electronics really go to.
The result is this documentary video titled ‘The Electronic Afterlife’, where Gorosh himself traveled miles across the world to see what ends up of electronic waste.
The shocking truth is that most young men who work to dispose of these electronics have a life expectancy of 25 years, and earn nothing but a few dollars a day.
This video serves such a useful reminder that everything we purchase on this planet eventually ends up as trash, so it is crucial that we are responsible with recycling.
