Toxic threads: Greenpeace puts fashion pollution on parade - in pictures

A new investigation by Greenpeace International has found a wide range of hazardous substances in the effluent of communal wastewater treatment plants in the Binhai and Linjiang industrial zones of Zhejiang province, China, as well as in a nearby river after a pollution accident. Textile manufacturing facilities within these zones supply many different companies, including international clothing brands, but identifying whether individual suppliers are releasing hazardous substances is almost impossible
