I believe this may be an example of externality--it's a copy of an e- mail I just sent to Mother Earth News referencing a promotional product they're using for Earth Day:

Dear Mother Earth,

How does a plastic earthball help the planet? Plastic is one of the largest problems facing the environment--it's made from coal or oil derivatives and decomposes slowly. It also clogs landfills and ends up accidentally in waterways.

Where are these earthballs made? I'm guessing overseas, probably China. How is the pollution generated in the manufacturing and shipping of these balls earth-friendly?

Shame on you.
