At the extreme ends of the earth, dull grey skies are whipped by winds saturated with dust. Here, men, women and children wander through boundless expanses of plastic looking for waste to sell at a few cents a kilogram. Is this a dystopia? Is this science fiction? No, it is not. This happens along the river Dhaka in Bangladesh. This is one of the numerous aspects of a disaster, which is now too extended to be told. By nature, plastic waste is indestructible and currently there is an incalculable amount of it on the planet.
