Boy with computer wires, Accra, Ghana. Photo by @peteressick. Today I saw a story in TIME magazine on the world's 10 most polluted places. The first on the list was Agnogbloshie, Ghana, where I took this photo in 2008. I first heard about the location in Ghana from Jim Puckett at the Basel Action Network. They are an organization that works tirelessly on the issue of e-waste, and it's illegal shipment to poorer countries. Unfortunately, the practice still continues polluting both the land and worker's bodies with chemicals from discarded electronics.

  • followmybongThis is sad. My friend was arrested for “stealing" from a public e-waste recycling drop-off in california. The way we see it he was doing what should of been done in the first place which was re-using e-waste and reducing the amount of garbage that pollutes these places. Whats wrong with this world when your taught to reduce, reuse and recycle but then your arrested for doing so.
