Summary "Humanity's impact on the natural world can have disastrous effects. E-Waste shines a light on the ever-growing amount of e-waste and the lack of resources to safely recycle it. With abundant charts and diagrams and large-format photos, this title explores the science behind damages to human and environmental health, and considers actions people and governments can take to try to improve the situation. Features include a flow chart showing the disaster's causes and effects, a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards."--Publisher's website.
