The life of our electronics, with Jim Puckett

Final lecture in the series Plastics Unwrapped: The Good, the Bad, the Debate

Away is a place.

Jim Puckett, former Toxics Director at Greenpeace International became
Executive Director of Basel Action Network in1997. He will speak about the
environmental and health consequences of the 8% year over year growth in the
electronic industry. His answer to the question: "where do old cell phone,
laptops, TV and gadgets go?" is not the one we might have imagined.

Come to one talk, or come to all; all lectures are open to the public!
