Privacy concerns aside, and believe me there are a lot. If there is anything that is damaging the environment it is thrown out electronics and a crap ton of clothing. Then this article comes a long and claims that if we were to put electronics into clothing which complicates both reuse of clothing and reuse of the electrical components let's convert everything into a non-recyclable and non-reusable form of clothing embedded with electronic components. Are you for real? The solution is to use less stuff and for longer. And when it comes time to dispose of something that hasn't any more use in your life anymore either re-purpose it as something else entirely, or recycle the various component materials for use in other products.
