Big Business, Regulation and Environment, Health and Safety
I encourage all to watch the video, a bit over seven minutes. Kid friendly (unless you censor environmentalism) and well-paced. I tried to find a good article that tied it together as well as this, but couldn't.
Now, after watching the video, what do you think of regulations like the "take back" concept? If you upgrade your gadgets and electronics every year, does watching this make you consider changing that? Are the problems caused by 'made for the dump' bad enough for government regulation, or can we as consumers influence that at all (keeping in mind that gadgets are purposely designed to not only be out-dated, but not even last very long)?
