Among the many environmental threats to the planet and human survival is the challenge of clean water, especially in parts of the world where soaring populations are squeezed into smaller geographical locations. There are many reasons rivers get polluted in such environments, but sometimes you, the consumer, can make a difference simply in your choice in clothes. Take a journey to China, Indonesia, and the Philippines to see just what impact the textile and fashion industry has had on the environment and meet some forward-thinkers who are seeing a path to economic and environmental sustainability. There is hope, but it might begin in your closet.
