E-Waste & Recycling Electronics

BAN_0.jpg
Basel Action Network

According to the EPA, more than 2.5 million tons of electronic waste or e-waste is produced every year in the U.S. alone. Some of these things end up in landfills and that can be very bad for the environment. On this Earth Day, we look at some possible solutions.
