What Happens To All That Recycling Anyway

I'll eventually be checking out first hand what happens to our recycling here locally, but in the meantime, Beth over at Fake Plastic Fish posted the following shocking video made for a British news service.

It's only about 3 minutes long and well worth the watch. I think the guy who has the recycling plant makes a good point. Each nation should be responsible for dealing with their own waste/recycling, just the same as we as individuals should be responsible for our personal output.

It's ironic that they found plastic bags from Tesco as they were one of, if not the, first stores in the world to list carbon output on all their products.

Food for thought.

Live Sustainably
