Shoot: Toxics Action Philips in Amsterdam the Netherlands

GP01IV9
Greenpeace activists hand out toxic ‘souvenirs’ at the international head office of Philips Electronics. The ‘souvenirs’ are little bottles of water, heavy polluted by toxics from illegally dumped electronics. With this action, Greenpeace wants to remind Philips of their share in the extreme pollution problems in Ghana. Electronic equipment is now shipped as second hand machines to developing countries, because exporting it as dangerous waste is illegal. But most of the products are defective and go straight to the scrap market. Without any protection they are taken apart by (child) workers. The toxics, released in the process, cause massive pollution of the environment and is very dangerous for people. Greenpeace calls on Philips to ban toxics and take responsibility for collection and correct recycling of their products.
