Citarum River, Indonesia, is the world’s most polluted river. A reporter teamed up with international scientists to investigate the causes and consequences of this pollution. One of the main polluters is actually the fashion industry: 500 textile factories throw away their wastewater directly into the Citarum River. Thanks to the help of concerned citizens, the “Green Warriors” team analyzed water samples, rice, children’s hair, etc. and found out many toxic chemicals are endangering the lives of the 14 million Indonesians using the Citarum water. Watch the trailer HERE.
Free and open to the public.
