Basel Action Network (BAN), United States

BAN is on a mission to champion global environmental health and justice by ending toxic trade: one of its flagship projects is the “E-Trash Transparency Project”, which aims to gather real data on where electronic waste ends up. GPS-based tracking devices are fitted onto e-waste, which include old computers, printers and monitors. Past projects by BAN show that more than 50% of their tracked e-waste ended up in Hong Kong. In 2017, the WYNG Foundation enabled BAN to fit another 100 GPS-based tracking devices onto e-waste found in the US and Canada.
