Rubber Hair Bands Recycled From Used Condoms From China !

Posted on December 1, 2007. Filed under: News | Tags: , , , |

 

The next time you tie your hair or your children’s, do not hold those rubber bands in your mouth. Those rubber bands could be from recycled condoms. Teach your children not to put them in their mouth too.

It would be better if you know where they come from but today many products have made in labels which do not tell the truth.

Those cheap and colourful hair bands are pretty but they can spread warts , herpes or STD’s because there could still be bacteria’s or viruses on them. There is no quality control mechanisms. It is illegal but those businessman  do not care about the health of others except for huge profits.

Laura1318:- Hi! Thank you for your introduction. Please to meet you !

Assuming this is true, how are STDs supposed to survive the recycling process?
To make ‘hair’ bands the materials would have to be melted down and processed.

Also where do they collect all the used condoms from? Fish them out of the sewers?

I have shoes made from recycled rubber, t-shirts, army jackets, jeans etc. made in China by a British company.

There are plenty of environmental reasons for not wanting to buy Chinese goods, but this isn’t one of them.

i heard about them stuffing condom and latex gloves into pillows
