Summary Dhaka is the center of a large textile industry and a significant contributor to Bangladesh's economy, but the waste it generates is causing big problems: local residents must vie with factories for access to energy and clean water, but manufacturers are reluctant to implement expensive pollution controls. This program travels to Dhaka's slums to show the destructive effects of industrial pollution on both the environment and human health, then looks at efforts to clean up the manufacturing process. Case studies include Padma Dyeing and Weaving in Bangladesh, and Axminster Carpets, a UK textile factory located in a national park.
