Overview

Of all the water in the world, there is only a tiny amount that humans can use. A large portion of this water is found in rivers, which quickly became the lifeblood of civilization. Historically, this tiny percentage of usable water has been more than enough to sustain life.

But because of the rampant pollution of rivers, our already limited water resources are diminishing further, and causing serious health problems across the developing world. There are many culprits, but none is more responsible than the fashion industry.

Through intense chemical production processes and the dumping of toxic wastewater directly into rivers, the fashion industry has created a global ecological crisis. RiverBlue follows internationally recognized conservationist Mark Angelo as he visits some of the world's most polluted rivers to investigate the environmental cost of fashion.
