Make companies clean up E-waste in developing countries

This petition had 19 supporters

E-waste is a large issue that affects us all, every year several million tons of e-waste is sent to developing countries to be disposed of, although they do not have the proper protection or training to be doing so. Over the years a large amount of e-waste has piled up and continues to grow as we buy newer better and products, disregarding our old ones. My goal is to hold companies such as Apple and Samsung responsible for these mountains of trash because they purposely create products to fail within a short few years so that we are forced to upgrade our products. The improper disposal of these products leads to hundreds of thousands of illnesses and deaths each year, as well as pollutes our earth.
