Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard Presents “Death By Design”

Consumers love — and live on — their smartphones, tablets and laptops. A cascade of new devices pours endlessly into the market. The numbers are staggering. By 2020, four billion people will have a personal computer. Five billion will own a mobile phone.

But this revolution has a dark side that the electronics industry doesn’t want you to see.

In an investigation that spans the globe, award-winning filmmaker Sue Williams investigates the underbelly of the international electronics industry and reveals how even the tiniest devices have a deadly impact on the environment, human rights, and public health. From China to the Silicon Valley, Death By Design tells a story of environmental degradation, public health tragedies, and the growing imbalance between consumerism and sustainability.

Please join Meaningful Movies : Sustainable Ballard on Sunday, May 19th @ 5:30pm at EcoCollective, 5201 Ballard Ave NW, for a screening of Death By Design. We invite you to stay after the film for a presentation and discussion.
