Our yellow-back fungus (Part 1)

2011-05-05

Villagers of Tonglin Village, situated in Jiandi Town of Shifang City in Sichuan Province, earn their livelihood by growing yellow-back fungus.  Every year the village produces 20,000 tonnes or over 20 million bags of waste from growing yellow-back fungus, but the waste generated by this process has led to severe environmental pollution. The negative impacts on local transportation, irrigation and sewage system are phenomenal. This video captures the problem and shows the distress of the villagers and their thoughts about this issue.
