The Chinese Town That Turns Your Old Christmas Tree Lights Into Slippers - The Atlantic

The Chinese Town That Turns Your Old Christmas Tree Lights Into Slippers - The Atlantic

One thing that 'less developed' countries do much better than we do, is make use of every last scrap of material, and then reuse it and recycle it, ad infinitum. Our trash really is someone else's treasure. Too bad our trash ends up in a landfill instead of being fully re-used. Do you ever drive past your neighbors yards on trash day, and wonder just how they manage to accumulate so much stuff in order to generate so much trash?
