Information and communication technology expenditures

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The high tech boom has brought with it a new type of waste – electronic waste, a category that barely existed 20 years ago. Now e-waste represents the biggest and fastest growing manufacturing waste. The black and white TV turned to colour, the basic mobile phone needed a camera, personal organizer and music, and who wants last year's computer when it can't handle the latest software? As we continually update and invent new products the life of the old ones is getting shorter and shorter.
