    Yeah we malaysian dont need American trash, we sent it back to america woot woot... Asian don't really throw stuff away because we reusing the plastic bag reused for almost everything, most water bottle reused for planting flower and vegetables, if too much we have this control burning with ventilation that controls the amount of carbon dioxide that were releases into the air and don't forget we have our beautiful green. American and Europe says palm oil is bad for enviroment but the reality is most animal find food and shelter in the palm field and don't forget it produce oxigen too. Asian figure everything

    And think about the long-term health damages to people living in areas surrounded with plastic trash. While sorting plastic waste is a source of income for some, it can cause unimaginable, profound health implications for the entire community there.

    Trevor, this is not only for, but for all people who have a platform especially comedians. We thank you for bring things to our attention, but you could you also bring us solutions to these problems. Comedians have an intuitiveness most of us don't. You make us laugh, you make us think and now you can help us solve problems.
