Producer - North America

Computers, mobile phones, TVs and home appliances have become an intrinsic part of our daily lives revolutionising the way we interact, communicate and view the world. Keeping up with the latest models and lifestyle products has firmly positioned us consumers as the driving force behind a runaway cycle of technological advancement. But what exactly happens to our broken computer when we throw it away? Where does that old phone go when we upgrade? From the US to the UK, Accra to Amsterdam, E-LIFE investigates the social and environmental consequences of our electronic waste.
