|The new hard-hitting documentary on the dumping of toxic computer wastes to China that continues to open peoples’ eyes to the true horror of the high-tech revolution.What people are saying about “Exporting Harm”:
“Everyone, every industry CEO, every solid waste manager, every politician, every student, every citizen, should see Exporting Harm. We need to establish sustainable systems for managing used electronic products. This video shows what not to do, and will help guide us all to ultimately do the right thing.” – Mr. Sego Jackson, Principal Planner of Snohomish County, Washington State, Solid Waste Management Division and NEPSI (National Electronics Product Stewardship Initiative) stakeholder.
“If there ever was a question about where the majority of the U.S.
e-scrap is going, this documentary presents undeniable evidence. U.S. generators and recyclers of e-scrap must pursue domestic solutions to stop the devastating impact that e-scrap is having on the people and environment of China.” – Ms. Lauren S. Roman, Vice President of United Recycling Industries, Inc.
“Exporting Harm” is an incredible video that strips the facade off of computer ‘recycling’ and shows the underside of corporate globalization in ways that will shock and outrage most people. It reveals the “dirty secrets” of the high-tech revolution and provides a ringing call to action for corporate responsibility, and a call for global environmental justice. This film should win a bunch of awards. – Ted Smith, Executive Director of Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition and NEPSI stakeholder.
