Plexit

“The UK exported more of its plastic packaging waste abroad for recycling in 2016 than in any of the three years previously. …
More plastic waste is now making its way to Indonesia, Vietnam and Malaysia. … The three countries are all significant sources of plastic pollution in our seas and oceans, mainly due to poor waste collections and management.” http://www.theecologist.org/News/news_round_up/2988755/uk_exporting_67_of_plastic_waste_amid_illegal_practices_warnings.html

This news will hearten those who fear Britain’s international trade will suffer from Brexit: the UK is already a key player in Asia’s dirty economy.
