Ever seen a sculpture being created live?
element14 is building the sculpture from electronics waste in the “Atrium at the entrance East” at electronica, in Munich , Germany . All attendees to the event have been encouraged to donate an old electronic device, component or small piece of electronics hardware to help in the building of the sculpture and show their commitment to responsible recycling.
“Together as an industry we are all committed to addressing the problems caused by the unregulated recycling of ewaste in developing countries,” said Harriet Green, CEO of Premier Farnell. “element14 offers the industry’s leading online source of up-to-date global electronics legislation information to help design engineers access the data they need from one definitive source. We hope the ‘electronics waste sculpture’ will give everyone at electronica the chance to show their commitment to the ever growing need to act responsibly for the future of our planet and its people, and regulate the recycling of electronic waste.”
