i have posted the greenpeace alert on e-waste issue.

india's huge IT industry and emerging hardware industry has to do more to cleanup right from production process onto recycling process so that the children of india can breathe clean air free of dangerous toxics that make up computer hardware.

our mega multi crore hardware and software companies and its jet setting top management can surely do a better job of being more green and protect india's and world environment in a responsible manner and each one of your email action will count towards that.

for in having a clean, safe and toxics free environment lies true development.

HCL lies. People die.
With one click you can stop both.

Every minute of the day, in recycling yards across the country, thousands of poor people handle the end products of India 's great IT revolution. When they break open a computer, they are exposed to a lethal cocktail of highly-toxic substances... mercury, lead, cadmium, beryllium, PVC, brominated flame retardants, you name it. Many of these are young children, with no training, no protective gear, and no medical care.

As one of India 's leading IT companies, HCL is contributing a lion's share to this problem, yet refuses to remove toxics from its computers. Instead, it has lied repeatedly about what's in its products, and what it plans to do with them

Greenpeace believes that all this can change. By clicking here to sign a letter , you can send out a message that HCL hears loud and clear, forcing it to stop lying, and start making toxic-free products.

I thank you for joining Greenpeace in the clean-up of India 's IT industry.
