Killer Bargain, A

Synopsis
A critical look at the cotton industry in India. Multinational companies are involved in promoting the extensive use of pesticides, many of which are banned in the western world. The bleaching and dyeing processes are also dangerous, not just to the health of the workers, as chemicals and chlorine are released directly into irrigation canals/.
