Re: everything is rubbish

Hi Robin.

Good point. I'm also aware that in many "3rd world countries" most plastics are burnt. In India for example every morning early, the "street sweepers" sweep up litter and set fire to it. Other cancer causing activities included the people who made the roads would use old tyers to create fire to burn the asphalt in 44 gallon drums. The country side is strewn with plastic caught up in the acacia scrub. The sooner the big chemical companies find its in their financial interest to develop totally biodegradable plastics or 100% reusable/non-degrading plastics the better eh? As a species we're so smart but so good at trashing the planet and poisoning our kids.

All the best.
