Plastics "poisoning Indonesian food chain"

Recommended Posts


"The burning of plastic waste in Indonesia, much of which has been sent there by the West, is poisoning the food chain, the BBC has learned.

"Environmental group IPEN found, in one East Java village, toxic dioxins in chicken eggs 70 times the level allowed by European safety standards.

"Long-term exposure to the chemicals is linked to cancer, damage to the immune system and developmental issues.

"Indonesia's government says it is sending the waste back to countries."

The west pays smaller nations to take a lot of our garbage.  It's sad.  Plastic is an especially huge issue.  We should return to glass, stoneware,paper and aluminium alternatives wherever we can but God forbid we cut into some shareholders dividend check next quarter.
