DHAKA - Water sources in areas of Bangladesh that are close to textile and clothing mills are rife with high levels of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) ‘forever chemicals’, new research suggests.

The report, ‘Persistent Threat: PFAS in Textiles and Water in Bangladesh’ from the Environment and Social Development Organization (ESDO) and IPEN, a global network of more than 600 NGOs, also highlighted how textile and garment manufacturers near areas where water was found with high PFAS levels were producing products for major global brands, including Benetton, C&A, Calvin Klein, H&M, Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s, Zara and many others.
