NEWS: Chinese recycle condoms into hair bands

Chinese hair bands made of condoms.

I’m all for recycling, but I think China has gone too far.

I originally received the news that China was using used condoms to make hair bands through an email forward, which I was sceptical to believe at first. But after a few searches, it turns out it’s true.

In 2007 reported that the hair bands were being sold in local markets and beauty salons. The condoms are said to be fully “recycled,” but there is still a risk of transfering infections and other diseases like AIDS, especially if users put the bands in their mouth.

Let this be a lesson to all: Be careful what you put in your mouth.
