Chinese recycling used condoms as cheap hair bands!

Recycling is bad bad bad! Yes, when it’s practiced with wrong material by wrong people. 

China daily via here and FP reports that used condoms that have been reprocessed into rubber bands and hair ties have been sold in part of China.

Yes, they’re recycling USED CONDOMS in to rubber band. 

This used    into !!!!!

“These CHEAP and COLORFUL  rubber bands and hair ties sell well in the city, threatening the health of local people and tourists,” the paper said.

Yikes! It’s just gross and disgusting! Hope any imported rubber bands, made in China, aren’t from this region.

What’s in these Chinese business people’s mind?  Not only the recent huge recalls on Toy but some other unpractical business are also cited by musicfrommyseoul.

FP also posted what’s really going on in e-waste recycling process in China.

Speaking of e-waste, FP interestingly points out that electronic sex toys, like dildos, are considered e-waste under British law, so you can’t just throw them in a landfill when you’ve enjoyed them out. This British company just promising to recycle used vibrators properly. 

What if used Western dildos piling up in some somewhere China too? What if these have been reprocessed into something else like this hair bands?
