Horrifying Pollution from Chinese Textile Factories – a Documentary

This documentary exposes the rampant pollution caused by textile factories in China.

Wastewater is not treated, thus the ocean is routinely polluted with brightly coloured dyes, and boiling hot, toxic chemicals. Locals are unable to drink local water or eat food grown in the region. Factory workers are coloured from head-to-toe in dye that cannot be removed from their skin. The government environmental bureaus turn a blind eye so that companies can continue to profit, and the environment and the people suffer. Buy locally-made and second-hand clothing to protest this gross abuse of power–just say NO to clothing and textiles made in China.

The money we save buying Chinese-made goods costs the world dearly.
