Please Think Twice About Throwing Electronics! This is serious!

Today, I was out having a late dinner with a bunch of guy friends and the topic about wasteland suddenly came up in our conversation. A friend shared this video with me, detailing of the dangerous living conditions in a wasteland in China and how people scrape a livelihood out of things we so voluntarily throw again.

The video is shocking and disturbing.

It's scary to think that what I have seen in several Japanese animes is actually happening in real life!
