    • 2019 January 15, Christopher Joyce, “A New Weapon In The War Against Plastic Waste”, in npr[1]:
      In the Philippines and other parts of Southeast Asia, the problem was compounded by a new kind of plastic packaging that took flight in the 1980s — the sachet. It was a plastic pouch but often bulked up with layers of aluminum or paper for shape or durability. [] Sachets are cheap, flashy and convenient.
