A recent study by the Environment and Social Development Organization (ESDO) and IPEN has uncovered alarming levels of toxic PFAS chemicals in surface and tap water near textile industry hubs in and around Dhaka, Bangladesh. The study, "Persistent Threat: PFAS in Textiles and Water in Bangladesh," reveals that PFAS were found in nearly all samples, often exceeding regulatory limits set by the EU, US, and Netherlands. The findings underscore the significant contribution of the textile industry to PFAS pollution, which poses serious health risks. ESDO and IPEN are urging global controls on all PFAS chemicals and advocating for safer alternatives in the textile industry.
