The Face Of China I - Waste Not

    Newer Older

    This is a common site across China. Men hauling seemingly impossible loads on these tricycle, trishaw, trickshaw things. This fellow is on his way to the recycling center with large bags he's filled with plastic bottles. This is not even close to the largest load I've seen being dragged about Liuzhou. Taken in front of the Liuzhou Train Station near my first apartment in China.

      Astonishing, and a great reminder that we should all reUSE, Recycle, RePURPOSE, and not buy so much stuff in plastic !!!.
