Three Little Words

By Golfrefugees

It doesn't say very much on your sports clothing label, but behind three little words is a whole story. One-fifth of farmland in China is too polluted to grow crops, nearly 60% of groundwater is unfit for human use and air pollution is 20 times the recommended safe levels.
The human cost of this damage has been devastating: huge swaths of productive arable land taken out of food production over fears of rice contaminated with heavy metals, more than 450 so-called “cancer villages” where untreated or mistreated chemicals have polluted local communities, choking levels of air pollution causing underweight babies, rising levels of lung cancer and a decline in male fertility.
Is 'made in China' a price worth paying?
