Billions and billions of clothing items are produced every year by the fashion industry to clothe the world. Most people love keeping up with the fashion trends, not giving any thought to the processes that go into producing the clothes. They do not know that the fashion industry is having a terrible impact on our fragile planet. Untreated toxic wastewater with lead, mercury and other toxins is dumped directly from textile factories into rivers. They are in fact one of the major polluters in the world, after the oil industry.
