Where is AWAY? by Rebecca Mayer

Bag It asks the question, “Where is AWAY?”

Away is Tata Nagar, India, and other towns like it, where our “recycled” plastic goes to die.

Residents live among plastic refuse, brought here for separation and recycling.

Smoke at night from the recycling facilities have caused lung problems in the youth and elderly of this rural Indian town.

Recycling is not always the answer.  It’s easy to feel virtuous when you toss plastic into the green bin curbside, but that step is just not enough.  Take the Plastic Pollution Coalition REFUSE pledge today.
