As You Sow Foundation

Yup, the woman here is about to smash open a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) with nary a consideration for her Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S;) ramifications. Imagine where the lead from the monitor is going to end up! If companies do not demonstrate care towards their employees, one could hardly expect them to care much about the environment. As You Sow is a non-profit dedicated to changing that. They have a Corporate Social Responsibility Program and the Environmental Enforcement Initiative. While the issue of electronics waste has rightly been getting a lot of press recently, ‘As You Sow’, also work on issues like labor standards, resource efficiency, indigenous rights , genetically engineered food, recycled content and container recovery and interestingly: human rights abuses by U.S. companies overseas. ::As You Sow Foundation [by WM]
