My switched-on collaborators over at Makeshift Magazine put together this infographic for their inaugural issue: ReCulture. It takes in hazardous materials, the extent of consumption and waste, disposal + recycling processes and flows of waste.

With this in mind – we're looking forward to folks collecting examples of successful e-waste innovations, services and businesses during this Inspiration Phase. What's working? Who can we learn from?

And as we move on to the Concepting phase – might infographics be employed to frame and feature e-waste solutions?

great to see some facts!
It's interesting that microwaves, appliances, and fridges make up to 50% of all e-waste, maybe we should start in our kitchens instead of our workplaces?

Great point Stefan! Hope folks might keep this in mind for Concepting.
