Every single day, 142,000 computers are thrown away in the United States alone. At least, that was the case in 2010. Electronic waste is the fastest growing municipal waste stream in the world. Today, that number is far higher and the only way to alleviate the situation is getting people to talk more about it. Photographer Benjamin Von Wong uses his photography as a way to make a positive social impact.

He couldn’t have done it without the help of his 50 volunteers!
