E-Waste

At your home, chances are your TV, computer and other electronic gear were made overseas. That's because it's cheaper to make them there. And it's cheaper to get rid of old electronics overseas. Someday, your old cell phone or CD player might end up right back where it started: in China. University of Illinois journalism student Ted Land visited a Chinese city where electronic waste is shipped by the thousands of tons. Pollution from that waste is threatening the health of people who live there. He submitted this story for The Environment Report.
