E Waste

E waste is a huge probelm. Electronic products are built with obsolescence dates pre planned. That means that a product is built with an expiry date after which a new product will replace it. This is a probelm because old pcs and mobiles etc pollute our land fills with toxins and carinogens. It is criminal for companies to be allowed to plan for their products to be replaced when it's predesessor pollutes our earth. Action needs to be taken by us the consumers or the governments of the world not just in the recycling part but in an implemention of grantees by companies on their products shelf lives. We should be told how long our products will function adequately.
