Hands up! This is a rubbery!
In episode five, GREEN RIDERS go to the source and find Southeast Asia’s first rubber tree, in Kantang, Thailand. We explore the complex, rubber-made story behind this most common of materials, a story of pestilence, slavery, deep jungles, big dreams, dashed hopes and a whole lot of drippy, white sap.
Viewer discretion advised: This story has a very sappy ending and may rubber the wrong way… 🙂
