This makes me sad. These are the kinds of things we don’t think about and take for granted — how the glass we’re drinking from was created, where the phone we’re discarding is going to end up after we’ve traded it in for a new one. I had a similar reaction when I read about the problem of recycling clothes:

While we’re depleting the earth of every good thing, we’re filling it up at an equal rate with every pernicious and vile thing.
