    Default In The UK Farmers Can Legally Feed Their Animals Plastic

    That's because in the U.K. up to 0.15% of plastic is allowed to go into feed for animals destined for human consumption.

    As the Guardian reports: "More than 650,000 tonnes of unused food, from loaves of bread to Mars bars, are saved from landfill each year in the UK by being turned into animal feed. This food is often still packaged when it goes through the recycling process as it is turned into animal feed. And because the machinery used to strip the unwanted food from its plastic wrapping isn't able to separate 100% of the plastic, the Food Standards Agency permits feed to contain a part of the material.

    I guess all this gives new meaning to the term "trace minerals"
