Study Questions

When reading, viewing, and listening, consider the following questions. You will need to do your own research to find some of the answers.

  1. What is e-waste?
  2. When is waste considered a commodity?
  3. How does the cradle-to-grave approach deal with e-waste? How does the cradle-to-cradle approach deal with it?
  4. What restrictions are placed on transporting e-waste? Why?
  5. In what countries does the selvage of valuable materials from e-waste create public health and environmental problems?
  6. What is the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEATTM)?
  7. How does EPEATTM evaluate electronic products? Do you know of similar tools developed and used in other jurisdictions?
