Summary
What would happen if we changed the way our clothes are made and sold? If we used different fibers or different agricultural techniques? If we insisted that facilities which produce textile products dispose of chemicals and materials properly? This program assesses the environmental impact of the textile industry both in the U.K. and abroad. It explores the ecological footprint of textile production in Bangladesh, and shows how the true cost of cheap textiles is being felt by the very poorest living downstream from polluting textile factories. It also looks at how companies are working to reduce the harmful results of their presence in the ecosystem by using state-of-the-art water recycling plants and by making better use of their waste streams
