[GreenYes] Africa Reuse and Repair - how ewaste and reuse shouldn't mix


Title: [GreenYes] Africa Reuse and Repair - how ewaste and reuse shouldn't mix

There is a new Youtube.com video about WR3A (World Reuse, Repair and
Recycling Assoc).  Type in WR3A in the search.

WR3A.org is patterned after "fair trade coffee", we are trying to set
up standards so the legitimate part of the business is not thrown out
with the bathwater.

The partner in Senegal was in the business buying good PCs and
monitors in California, and his business was destroyed by SB20 (which
pays more to destroy the equipment than he could afford to pay after
transport cost).  He moved to NY and bought a load for $40K and got a
load of junk - New Orleans flood material he suspects, definite mud
all over the PCs.  He and his wife helped produce the video with WR3A.

apologies for cross postings!

Robin Ingenthron, president WR3A.org
