Don't Waste Your Life

More Videos Environmentalists remove tons of plastic in Pacific Ocean This is where the global dimension of the problem begins. It is often cheaper for developed countries to ship containers of plastic waste halfway around the world to be "recycled" in developing countries than to deal with the trash themselves. While plastic importing and recycling can be a legitimate and lucrative "green" industry in the developing world, rogue firms find it even more profitable to either incinerate plastics or dump them in landfills.

Burning plastic releases noxious fumes into the air.

Waste Not : Erin Rhoads :

Plastics in landfills can leech out toxins, and these plastics and toxins can end up in local waterways. Who is at fault? The rogue importers? The local governments who allow this to happen under their very noses? Or the exporters and their governments who mentally distance themselves from the waste once it is geographically taken "away"? The irony is that no matter how far this waste is distanced, it still ends up somewhere on Spaceship Earth, humankind's one and only home.

While the immediate negative effects of this imported waste are most acutely felt locally, the global ecosystem will suffer in the long run. Improperly incinerated plastics cause CO2 emissions to skyrocket, fueling global climate change. Plastics which find their way into these countries' coastal waters eventually enter into the global oceanic conveyor belt.

And unrecycled materials increase the demand for new plastics worldwide. How rivers became the plastic highway into the oceans. There is an old trope in the environmental stewardship debate between the developing and developed worlds: Rich countries will pressure poorer ones to be more sustainable -- to conserve forests, clean up their energy sources, and curb polluting industries -- while developing countries will point out that their developed counterparts got rich by employing the same environmentally unfriendly methods they now denounce.

Paul Driessen's book "Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death" argues that this "new" form of imperialism is keeping the developing world destitute for the benefit of the developed world. Recent reports of plastic rubbish sporting tell-tale European brands being discovered thousands of miles away in trash dumps in Asian countries highlight a new dimension of this debate: the distancing of waste. Jennifer Clapp's work details how the global economy has enabled this geographical and mental distancing between the consumers and their waste, and how this is further encouraging overconsumption.

We need to talk about waste.

Shrink-wrapped vegies, disposable coffee cups, clothes and electronics designed to be upgraded every year: we are surrounded by stuff that we often use once and then throw away. Globally, many individual households produce enough rubbish to fill a three-bedroom home every year. This includes thousands of dollars worth of food and an ever-increasing amount of plastic, which takes hundreds of years to break down and often ends up in our oceans or our food chain.

But what to do about such a huge problem?

By exporting trash, rich countries put their waste out of sight and out of mind

Is it just the price we pay for the conveniences of modern life? What if it were possible to have it both ways - to live a modern life with less waste?
