But shipbreaking is not without its challenges, and we also examine the dangers it poses to workers and the environment, including the harm it can cause to local ecosystems. Finally, we look closer at the potential benefits of sustainable recycling and how this industry can help reduce waste and conserve resources. Get ready for a deep dive into this little-known world!
