China refused the import of UK plastic waste from 01 January 2018. Now much of it is being sent to Thailand instead for recycling but the problem is that it is not cost effective for countries to recycle this waste as the bundles have not been properly sorted and contain amongst the plastic - card and metals. To recycle is simply too labor intensive. Makes me wonder where all this plasic floatng off the coast of Thailand has really come from.

Thank you for producing this video. People need to know this. We cannot continue to live in this disposable society where we just throw stuff away, expecting it to just disappear. It stays here, on this planet, washing up on our travel beaches (and otherwise) or in one of the many gyres, or "islands of waste", around the world. We, and most people on Earth, need to adjust our thinking of consumption and the ability to just throw stuff "away".
