American Pie

I just read in Plastic: A Toxic Love Story that at least for the moment plastic pellets (raw plastic) is created here in the United States - then shipped to China to be made into everything from computers to the plastic crap given out in birthday party goody bags. Then it's shipped back to the United States to be sold.
It's kind of like growing apples in New Hampshire, shipping them to Russia to be made into apple pie and then sent back to be sold in Stop and Shop.
Don't tell me we already to that too.

song: American Pie • artist: Don McLean
