An early Chinese New Year "gift"

Photo | 2014-01-13

Two Greenpeace activists submit our latest investigation findings to China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection as an early Chinese New Year "gift". You can read the report here, which details how we witnessed and documented a huge, black plume of wastewater, on the surface of the sea neighboring China's Wubao Dyeing Industrial Zone. 

We are calling upon the government department to implement a new and crucial chemicals regulation policy in order to combat the toxic pollution of China's waterways. Violation of environmental standards, often by extending discharge pipes into coastal water, is a common practice by industrial manufacturers based in coastal China.
