An extreme case of the abusive usage of plastic in a so-called 'ecology recovery' project. This quarry is too steep to support sprayed-on soil or new plants. Therefore the entire quarry is covered by green plastic netting in order to be visually green. Here, the town's objective has shifted from an 'ecological' concern to a 'cosmetic' concern. The concept of being green and life friendly is entirely mis-conducted.
