Abstract: 

This remarkable and disturbing video documents the end-of-life destinations of "recycled" electronic waste in China. It reveals the environmental and occupational hazards that these citizens encounter on a daily basis and conveys why it is essential that we reduce toxicity and establish producer responsibility as a management technique in the U.S. It was produced by the Basel Action Network (BAN), an international network of activists seeking to put an end to economically-motivated toxic waste export and dumping - particularly hazardous waste exports from rich industrialized countries to poorer, less-industrialized countries.
