When shopping online for new plastic barrels from ebay, the only way to get the most bang for your buck is to buy them from the company’s UK headquarters.
However, a recent report by the Financial Times found that a new report from eBay indicates that plastic barrels are being made in other parts of the world.
ebay’s plastics director for the US, Nick Taylor, said that the company was working to “improve the safety and quality of our products” but declined to comment on the report.
The FT report also found that ebay has begun using plastic from its own factory in California, and it has recently started manufacturing plastic from other suppliers.
The report cited a leaked document from e-bay, where it said the company had begun using plastics from its San Diego, California factory.
e-Bay has been criticized for not doing enough to protect the environment when it comes to plastic barrels.
For instance, e-Toys’ plastic barrel supplier, El-Baf, has been linked to plastic pollution in China.
“It’s not surprising that e-Bays plastic barrels contain plastic, since plastic is an environmental pollutant,” Greenpeace UK’s John Simpson said in a statement.
“But the report reveals that eBay’s plastics suppliers are in fact not responsible for any of this plastic pollution, and we should demand a full accounting of their actions.”
The report also pointed to ebay charging an additional $2.99 per barrel, for each plastic barrel purchased.
“These prices are just one of many environmental impacts of e-Ebay’s plastic barrels,” Simpson said.
