  • Why do you always blame others ?
    In the first place, shouldn’t America handle your own wastes?
    And now you blame China for refusing your waste ? I’m sure China with such large population will have much more waste than America, why do they need more ?
    You should use LEsS and not dump your waste to beautiful South East Asia.

  • Haha, never a day would I see this small minded nation not complain!
    The successful ones look for solution.
    The losers look for someone to blame .
    FACEPALM 🤦‍♂️

  • Come on , is China your nanny? Go and work hard. Depend on yourself. Don’t always look for the Chinese pacifier.They can’t look after you for all the time. It is time to look after yourself.

  • the future, belongs, to patriot. Some self proclaimed intelligent people who have problem recruiting probably need to accept the fact that their occupation is not needed anymore and are to be phased out.

  • The Biggest Polluters on the Planet and we send China our Trash??? They just dump it in the Ocean! Send Nothing on China – Period!

  • If we threw money in to solving this problems like we do on our military the world trash problem would have been solved long time ago.

  • Remember that one country that never got picked for anything. The one that copies success and snuffs out its citizens voice and rights. Yea exactly stfu

  • You Americans should handle your own trash , don’t transport them to the developing countries. You complain the developing countries for the air quality, then transporting trash to them, it’s funny, isn’t it?

  • Not only the Americans companies, but also all the companies of the world. Handling your own trash, It’s right what China is doing.

  • Why would we take your trash, allow you to spy on us, you report fake news regarding Hong Kong and you complain about us ? The US is absolutely shameless!!

  • 조선정복한국Clown says:

    Western countries send their garbage to China, accusing China of polluting the air. When China rejects their trash, they accuse the Chinese market of being too closed. Perfect users of double standards

  • The communist chinese burn it all, poisoning their own population and the planet abroad. They will be first to steal the technology we strive to develop to fully integrate renewables throughout our society.

  • The bigger picture here is we need to invest in Companies like that last one shown here in the video. We know better now let's do better and save the ocean. We can create jobs by doing so, which pays more taxes to the government. Win win. Wiifm

  • Don't close down! Why can't we make our own plastic pellets and make products with them here. More jobs, etc
    It will take a little time but should be done.

    I don’t know if I should say this but the comment section sounds like a bunch of high schoolers. What I mean is that there are 48 comments (as of now) that says topics like

    1. America is a lazy country
    2. Nick picks the one question like “who to blame” and say Americans are to blame
    3. “Take care of your own trash” without explaining what that means.
    A. Do you mean force companies to make 100% bio degradable bottle
    B. Do you mean educate the importance of recycling.
    You know, any useful questions and information but no. It’s just a bunch of hate words in your high school presentation to stir emotions for an easy grade.

  • I have long wondered why trash is not in world crisis mode. we seem to just keep on finding another hole to dump it in. all that resources buried, out of sight-out of mind. who will lead???

  • No wonder our trash companies have giving us smaller trash containers & bigger recycle bins last year as a new program they called. Now hearing about China stopping their help I see why. It's crazy as the small trash bins are a joke as you can barley fit 2 or 3 bags in them.

    These trash & recycle companies are a joke & with all the greed from both sides they will never solve this trash.

  • Loll, please don't blame China or any other developing countries for banning our own trash. We only represent a small percentage of the world's population and yet use the most plastic and other raw materials. We then dump our most toxic waste products to China and other developing countries knowing full well some of them don't have the industrial capacity to properly recycle them. NBC makes it sound like the fault is with china, lolll

  • Javier Gutierrez says:

    Lame as you didn't make friends you enjoyed the money while it came in now you is broke. Now your being humble go collect food stamps like the rest

  • That's makes no since. We want to be more sustainable but no one wants to make the effort.
    The point of being sustainable is to not have to rely on others.

  • Good for you China america need to recycle there own trash!!! I’m from the states America is disgusting. Let’s push are waste to another country and complain about jobs being lost… welcome to American home of the greed!!

    Very insightful.

    2 different companies.
    2 different opinions.

    All about the benjamins baby.
      And THAT is all…either of these 2 points of view are concerned with.
         Not us, the populace. The sheeple. OR….this planet.
             NO ONE in any segment of "all things plastic" is overly concerned with this planet.  They are overly concerned with not having to work at McDonalds.

       And both those companies can tell whatever lie they want to from their personal points of view.
       It's still……….their lie.

    You're NOT going stop plastic pollution without HUGE taxing, and fines, on the manufacturers of plastic.  To the point it cripples them and puts them on the line of bankruptcy.
    Until then??
    Lip service.
    Nothing…..but lip service from those involved in any segment of the industry.

        nice propaganda video.

  • Happy to see the positive progress of the second company! It shows that this is a good ban, doing correct things for the whole world.
