The Story of Electronics (2010)

The Story of Electronics, releasing Tuesday, NOVEMBER 9, employs the Story of Stuff style to explore the high-tech revolution’s collateral damage—25 million tons of e-waste and counting, poisoned workers and a public left holding the bill. Host Annie Leonard takes viewers from the mines and factories where our gadgets begin to the horrific backyard recycling shops in China where many end up. The film concludes with a call for a green ‘race to the top’ where designers compete to make long-lasting, toxic-free products that are fully and easily recyclable.

Our production partner on the electronics film is the Electronics TakeBack Coalition, which promotes green design and responsible recycling in the electronics industry.

  1. this video is biased pro pseudo-green bullshit, you guys are the reason clowns like trump have supporters on his denial of global warming; because you present mythical fallacies as facts.

  2. Can you tell me the animation software that you use in this video? Because I need to make a mathematical tutorial for students.

  3. That girl is so hypocritical.

    She doesn't need electronics to listen to music.

    Buy a guitar or a drum set or something. Music has been around long before your modern electronics.

  4. Ok, the thing about this video is that it doesn`t take into account the fact that a lot of this stuff is caused by the battery dying. Li batteries only last so long and are expensive. When I look at a S4 that cost me a penny through a deal with my carrier and the replacement battery was going to cost me $60 why would I pay that. Put on top of that the fact that I got a G4 for only $25 bucks and it makes spending $60 just so my phone doesn`t go in the bin even more unreasonable. So no it isn`t because I have to have the new thing it`s because alot of times repairing something is too expensive for reasons outside of the product. Even the example they gave with the guy wanting 50 bucks is because of taxes and labor.

  5. wake up you fools! The purpose of the video is to educate people to choose smart technologies, stop buying new stuff just because its "newer or cooler", so we could finally save our planet !

  6. Who are these people buying junk that gets tossed in 18 months? All of my electronics usually end up outdated before they're replaced.

  7. She forgot to mention the plastic wrapped around all the other crap. But her big bad business owner should have depicted Steve Jobs. He didn't want people fooling with " his" stuff. All the other companies followed suit

  8. "You made it, you deal with it."
    In Germany we have a law, that forces the manufactures of TV-Screens, monitors and the like to take it from the consumer for recycling, because it is illegal to send such waste into third world nations.

  9. What program does she use to make this video where she is behind a white screen that you can put pictures on
