Shouldn’t They Know Better?


We first travel to a waste bank on the island of Lembeh, Indonesia to see how recycling works (or doesn’t work) in small villages. Then we take a look at PET plastic recycling in Asian urban centres…it’s feasible…but if local governments here shoulder the burden of collecting and sorting the plastic waste…is that really making the polluters pay?

This new 5-episode season is based on The Asia Plastic Atlas from the Heinrich Boell Foundation with support from Break Free From Plastic Asia Pacific.
