Child labour ruins childrens lives
Child labour in Africa
African children have been involved with child labour for a long time. The average age for child labour is between 7-13. Child labour mainly happens because the family of the childrens family is poor and they need money so they send their child into labour for pennies a day! And the conditions in the plant can be so awful that they can die from the gases and other deathly materials they are involved in! There are over 70 million children aged 3-17 involved in child labour in africa!

Child labour in Asia
Child labour in Asia is even more serious than Africa in the sence that there are over 53 million more children in child labour in Asia!! Thats 122 million kids puting their lives in danger and altimately destroying their lives for pennies a day!
Child Labour needs to stop!
There is one good thing about child labour. That is that we can change child labour because we as a whole created child labour by running the prices down and having competition between companies. We can change child labour by only buying free trade products
What I learned about child labour
I learned how big of a problem child labour is because of how many kids are involved and how awful the conditions are.
This is one of the main reasons the earth is in such bad shape, the companies make cell phones to not last that long in order for the companies to make money. By doing this the earth is really running low on resources and half the time a cell phone breaks but the only problem is a very small one and can easily be fixed but companies don't offer to fix that problem, or at least for an expensive amount so it would just be cheaper for them to buy a whole new phone. Over the past 20 years we've used up 60% of the worlds resources, 60%! Why? It's all because of the demand for electronics
A huge dump of old electronics
This shows all the items we waste!
This is one of the biggest issues with broken phones
The cracked screen is one of the biggest issues because it is incredibly common and expensive to replace
this is a harmful smokestack in Hamilton, our city!
Harmful gases are very serious they can cause cancer! and other serious diseases/sickness! they mainly come from factories' smokestacks and other places. There are a lot of harmful gases that come out of our own city, Hamiltons factories. They can affect people from kilometers. factories also bury gases in the ground and that way it affects our ground water.
What I've learned
I've learned a lot about the environment I've learned how bad gases are and how much we need to stop the companies from releasing terrible gases. I've also learned about electronics and how we've been taking too many resources
How you can help
You can help by not buying too many electronics and stop wasting too many resouces
