Recycling is something the Malaysian government has been putting a lot of effort into implementing in recent years. Of course, this is to save the planet from having too much waste piled up on some landfill.
Though it is awesome to practice recycling and all, this particular adult diaper factory in China took it WAY too far!
The underground factory in Tancheng, Shandong was found to be taking old and used diapers to make new ones, STOMP reported.
The local authorities raided the illegal factory where mountains of the cotton were found in the 400 square metre premises – all ready to be turned into new diapers for resale.
The whole area obviously smelt horrendous!
Their operation consisted of collecting old and used adult diapers, tear them apart to harvest the cotton on the inside, and then make new ones to be sold for dirt cheap prices in retail.
Of course, the massive difference in price between this illegal factory’s and of the legit brands found on shelves raised a few eyebrows. Reporters decided to investigate the matter and found this sickening revelation.
Understandably, netizens were outright repulsed by this horribly cheap and unhygienic tactic for money making. But most of all, they were shocked that business ethics could stoop so low.
“China always surprise us with the most unexpected things.”
“China factories by far are the most creative in recycling business.”
“China. The land of endless possibilities.”
Indeed, this country has been know for illegally reusing waste just to make money. Better watch out for stuffs made in China!
But what’s more surprising is how Singapore would also ‘recycle’ when it comes to cemeteries.
