the WORLDby how you

I wish I could say that below were shopping links for ethical electronics.  Unfortunately, to date, I have been unable to find any such thing.  (For more information check out our Electronic Sweatshops page)  
I buy my electronics used to prevent more factory demand.  But the good news is, for the electronics
you already own, there are now ethical options for messenger bags, tablet sleeves, cell phone holders
and more!  And, in contrast to the sweatshops of the electronics industry, these products were produced with love and care shown to the artisans who made them!
