This is a great video about the life-cycle of consumer electronics by the folks at the Story of Stuff Project. It really shows the unfortunate impact of some of the choices we make. Empower Up helps to eliminate these kinds of problems by emphasizing reuse over recycling and using a highly ethical recycling process that is designed specifically to prevent the kinds of environmental problems described in the video. All materials are disassembled or otherwise processed by Empower Up volunteers or by our domestic partners. No materials are sent to developing nations for recycling.
