Australian lead boomerang

Scooping lead and other (toxic) minerals out of the big booming Quarry, killing thousands of birds and risking the health of people is one of the extractive industies in Australia. Once the unprocessed stuff arrives in the production site China they 'add value', producing unsafe and toxic jewellery, clothes and toys which are consumed in Australia and dumped in tips. It is a small world (of toxins). Check out your local shops, markets and dwelling and make informed decisions.
