[Event] Forum on the Dangers of E-Waste, June 9 – www.ecowastecoalition.org

Friends,

Greetings!

Electronic waste or E-waste is a looming global crisis faced by many countries. In the Philippines, majority of Filipinos use various electronic equipments such as computers, televisions, MP3 players, etc., and since most of these products were designed to become obsolete in a short period of time, huge amount of these waste are being dumped or burned, releasing many toxic chemicals into the environment. The problem is worsened by the continuous influx of massive quantities of re-used or second hand electronic goods from developed countries, where use and obsolescence is far more frequent. For instance, 55% of surplus TVs and 76% of surplus refrigerators in the Philippines are imported from Japan.

In line with the growing concern over E-Waste, the EcoWaste Coalition (EWC) and Ban Toxics!, invite you to a forum on “The Dangers of Electronic Waste or E-waste” on June 9, 2011, Thursday, 8:30am-12nn at the PHALTRA Building, 139 Matahimik Street, UP Village, Quezon City.

The forum will elaborate on the dangers of E-waste and also showcase the new 20-minutes documentary film on the impacts of E-waste that was co-produced by the EWC and Ban Toxics!, and supported by the Foundation for the Philippine Environment.

RSVP. Please confirm your participation at <info@ecowastecoalition.org>
