Waste Not, Want Not or Back and Forth to China

Guardian :: The UK's new rubbish ump: China

I just came upon this story through Cybersatan and am utterly horrified. The economic explosion of manufacturing in China is known but not overly chronicled. The cheapness of products in the U.K., Europe and North America, has developed over the last 6 years because everything is now Made in China.

And people here just buy things new and throw the old thing away just because it might be SCRATCHED! And the rubbish then gets shipped all the way back to China. Which according to the BBC news last night, is now suffering from runaway pollution.

What the hell are the Communist Party in China doing?

Why do the Euro-American economies not force a regulatory system within their societies that implements the philosophy of "Waste Not, Want Not"?
