How many here are aware that a lot of stuff that comes out of China is either a knock off or simply poorly made in sweat shops?

I am by no means a raging "green" minded person, but I believe plastic should not be used for container packaging of any sort. Unless there is a chemical reaction reason to. Plastic one and done packages are steadily accumulating worldwide. Let's pay more and go back to glass as much as possible.

cotton is the real thing and natural, the left bitch about the environment but it ok to wash all the chemical dye into the lake after u wash plastic cloths, al Gore want more money then banned cigarettes. that would make more sense for the Paris agreement!

This is why if you see containers for bottles and lids, make use of them. Saves a metric tonne of time for a processor.

Polyester clothing itself has to be recycled. If it lands up in landfill, then it won't decompose. Plastic bottles themselves should be recycles back into plastic bottles, instead of using new material. But industries have to cut back on their plastic use altogether.

Down vote. Poorly made video, it makes hazardous recycling (for both humans and the environment) look like its so safe. "To the Chinese textile industry this waste is a valuable commodity" LOL not in 2018 when it's banned from China. Hope the UK builds up its recycling infrastructure like a responsible country.

There is some bull shit going on here. Polyester is a type of plastic, but plastic bottles are made from a different type of plastic called polyethylene terephthalate or PET. You can't just convert PET to polyester by melting it!

So the UK exports its trash to China to get it made into clothes that then gets sent back to the UK? how the hell does that make sense? How lazy can people in UK be to make their own polyester and clothes. then again this isn't the 70s we don't wear Polyester clothing.
steve gale (5 months ago)
Not anymore. Chine has stopped imports. 'we don't wear Polyester clothing' you reckon? Read the materials label.
