It is true that with 1/5th the world’s population (1.3 billion people), an exploding industrial economy, and sketchy national restrictions – there is cause for concern over China’s environmental policy. Recently walking the streets of Shanghai, however, I came across a new experimental initiative to increase recycling (see picture).
So if you have any extra cash sitting around the house, resist the temptation to throw it away. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
And as a friendly public service announcement when you travel the subway…
Don’t “send money to the thief” …please recycle it instead.
