Wow, 426,000 cellphones are going to waste everyday! I know I am guilty of this as I’ve switched my phone about 3 times in the last year or so. But to keep up with all the technology and fast internet access, that’s probably what you gotta do. Maybe I can sell off all of my old phones.
Maybe the cellphone companies have to find a better way to disposing the cellphones or even better, let you trade your old cellphone for credit on the new phones. (But they won’t, they are too greedy)
The above picture is just a picture of how many 426,000 phones are when put into perspective.
Artist Chris Jordan thought that this number was just too big to imagine, so he decided to put it into perspective for you. To get an idea of the magnitude of this image, the full size shot measures in at 5′ x 8’4″. He also tries to portray less gadgety things like the amount of gun-related murders or SUV sales.
