Many industries, including the recycling of e-waste, provide needed income yet result in disease and death when done improperly. One of Pure Earth’s efforts is to eliminate the burning of plastic coating covering valuable copper wires which results in toxic plumes of hazardous smoke. Pure Earth is working in Africa and other locations around the world to provide recyclers with safer ways to continue their work and support their families. This year’s Benefit Ball will explore this work and support further efforts in this area.
