Objective and Background

Friends of the Earth (HK) created “E-led life” because of the large numbers of electronics that are being purchased in Hong Kong and seeks to encourage people to not purchase as many unnecessary electronic items so as to help the environment.

Beginning in 2009, E-led focused on trying to raise levels of awareness on whether people control electronics or whether electronics control people. Through encouraging people to purchase electronics in a reasonable and rational manner we will help to reduce the amount of electronic waste created each day.
