we consume more than we produce

Felixstowe, on the Suffolk coast, just a snap shot of the port, I was surprised to learn that the majority of containers that are loaded back on ships to leave the port are empty, some are filled with our waste that is exported to be recycled by other countries. New containers are sent over with goods in, are emptied, then sold to be used as storage containers in this country. This clearly shows that we consume more than we produce.  Do you have any thoughts or comments ?
