Toxic River Skirt
The colour of water after textile dyeing is not a pretty sight.
Textile dyeing is the world’s second largest polluter of water, and the leftover water from the dyeing process is often dumped into ditches, streams, or rivers.

Chemically polluted water leaves locals without access to drinking water and suffering from a long list of health problems. Numerous deaths have been reported.
