Not so slow boat from China

Husband alerted me to this article by Michael Sheridan on Timesonline . It quantifies what we have known for a long time.

To China for the holy grail: a price of 99p

I particularly like the comment by Russell Brocklehurst which follows the article.

The point is: do we need to buy all those things that are being hawked at 'cheap' shops, websites and auction sites?

Who pays the price of the poor health which the young factory girls suffer in return for the pittance they are paid so that we can have our trinkets?

We must begin to retreat from living in this disposable world before these non-biodegradable 'disposables' bury us ... literally.
