    The materials provided below — the video and examples of posters — were developed for a new United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) campaign on waste from electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE or “e-waste” or “e-scrap”) by a group of Emerson University graduate students who called themselves the “Mixed Greens.” Although none of these materials are from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) (although I note that one of the “Mixed Greens” is from Jamaica!), and the video is not (as yet) available in Spanish or Portuguese, they do involve an environmental issue facing LAC nations and probably will eventually be seen worldwide, including LAC nations, thanks to UNEP. The campaign is expected to reach full swing early in 2007. For more information, click on the screen capture of their site (parts still under construction) at right.

      I think it is really good for the environment to recycle electronics since there are so many harmful chemicals in them.
