New Video On E-waste Sheds Light on the Work of Wastepickers

My worlds are converging in India. It was just brought to my attention that some University of British Columbia journalism students, with support from Frontline, have put together a short documentary on E-waste which features wastepickers in Delhi!

The video is fantastic and very informative.
