Environmental, Social and Economic Issues in Textiles

Synopsis
The third film in the Talking Textiles series considers the effect to the planet and its people of manufacturing cotton and using it to create the textiles so basic to satisfying human needs.

What may otherwise have been considered to be a relatively harmless fibre (and which in some countries is called ‘White Gold’) turns out to hold some less than honourable credentials. Alternative fibres are considered in this programme as are the ever changing needs and wants of customers’ when buying clothing, textiles and fashion.

Intended for secondary school use.
