As part of my research into the diverse views on sustainability and ICT, I wrote a paper about edge computing and greenwashing.

'Refusing the Burden of Computation: Edge Computing and Sustainable ICT' is published in the open access, online APRJA journal's issue on research refusal.

The article is accompanied by images from the Keep America Beautiful campaign, sponsored by many companies responsible for disposable plastic packaging and pollution – such as Pepsico, Dow Chemical Company, MacDonalds, Mars Wrigley and UPS – and their trade associations – the Plastics Industry Association, the International Bottled Water Association, the National Association of Convenience Stores and the American Chemistry Council. After 68 years of success, the campaign is still going strong.

The journal has many wonderful contributions, and a great editorial by @xocffoeg and Christian Ulrik Andersen.
