India IT Industry Tackling E-Waste

E-waste has become a scourge in India and other developing nations.  It comes to them in droves from countries like ours and the toxic chemicals contained in our computers and electronics are polluting the water and affecting the health of those that are put in charge of cialis cheap no prescription getting rid of it.  India's IT industry has decided that there has to be a better way, so they've joined Greenpeace and other organizations in drafting new rules for the handling and disposal of e-waste.

The group is proposing that the new rules called "E-Waste (Management and Handling) Rules 2008 be added to the canadian pharmacy levitra generic country's Environment (Protection) Act of 1986.  The current rules only govern the disposal of industrial waste and online pharmacy viagra ottawa canada don't cover e-waste.

The proposed legislation would require electronics producers to extend their responsibility through a product's lifecycle, ensuring its recycling or proper disposal.  The rules also call for a ban on the import of used electronics for recycling and disposal, although the legislation does allow for the import of electronics for charitable purposes.

Without an open invitation to send our used electronics overseas, maybe U.S. companies and consumers would take more responsibility for their safe disposal?

Unfortunately nobody follows them. For a few Rs you can get the inspector to look the levitra 50 mg other way and do what you want.

India has very strong environmental laws - and is a total disaster since nobody adheres to the law.
It will be tough to implement this in India

Computer Reuse

Given the low labour costs in India I would hope they extend the lives of their computer equipment as much as they do with their vehicles. Most computers consume 70% of the electricity they use in thier lifetimes during the manufacture process. Any efforts that extend the lives of computers will reduce this proportion and in the huge population of India this will have a consequential impact on the environment.
