Abstract

In the textile industries, water is a very essential element. For many operations in various stages of textile productions, in order to produce various sorts of textile products, starting from raw fiber to RMG (Ready Made Garments), especially for the textile dyeing and washing mills, water plays very important roles. As a result, we notice a lot of composite textile mills by the side of many water-bodies, especially rivers, lakes, canals, drains, etc. When rivers are polluted by the wastes of the textile industries, it harms / disturbs the eco-system in various destructible ways. The environment as well as seasonal climate is vastly dependent upon the balance of the eco-system. Moreover, textile products as well as clothing are also very important for human beings. So, the textile industry managers should take the responsibility to improve eco-friendly status of the wastages released from their industry. The aim of this paper is to highlight the ways by which textile industries pollute the water-bodies; the level of harm caused by these pollutions and the ways to minimize these pollutions by improving the eco-friendly status of the textile industry wastages released to the water-bodies or to the environment.
