Interview with Christine, LES Ecology Center

Interview Notes

Some Takeaways:

  • Still a youth opportunity to educate people more about what happens to electronics when they are thrown and why they should care about it
  • Advocate for in the industry → items are not just produced → planned obsolescence in mind → then the printer doesn’t work → really build things that can be created → cell phones that have batteries that can be exchanged to live together → better design of these products → pushed by the industry to sell → not just about squandering 
  • “Big picture is that we want to see devices not get thrown away so easily” – Christine
