This short video called The Story of Electronics is the latest in The Story of Stuff video series. As the title suggests, this particular video is about our collection of electronics which create a lot of e-waste every single year. That e-waste is harmful not just to the environment but also to us and other people around the world whose job it is to dismantle or salvage the usable parts in these electronics. [via]

This seemingly unending cycle of replacing electronics is dubbed “Designed For The Dump” and Annie Leonard, the creator of The Story of Stuff Project, is urging everybody to do as much as they can to make sure the companies they buy products from engage in respectable and environmentally-conscious practices.
