Textiles: Environmental Impacts

Filmed in Bangladesh and in the UK, this resource assesses the environmental impacts of the textile industry both here and abroad. It looks at how companies in the UK are working to meet government targets to reduce their environmental impact by using state of the art water recycling plants and by making better use of their waste streams. The resource then explores the environmental impact 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.
