    This project introduces how the textile industry in Lahore causes environmental issues. The proposal of this group as to how the government should deal with this problem showcases their ability to give solid conclusions and concrete solutions to a rare topic.

    It was nice to see the textile problem from the business owners’ perspectives, and this showed that they are not completely responsible for the environmental problems that the textile industry is causing. Your conclusions to the problem are very clear and reasonable, and it’s nice how you considered the issue from many different perspectives. Great job!

    Owners of businesses usually do not have the luxury of expressing concerns for environmental issues despite the damage they cause, but your group was able to not only look at the consequences of the pollution caused by these businesses, but also the struggles that such businesses go through. You were able to link economic, environmental, and health issues by looking at the problem from different perspectives, which helped you in coming up with a solution that satisfies all three problems. Good job!

    The lack of gas and the shortage of electricity has a big impact on the daily lives of the common people. This is a reminder for us to conserve and realize that we must give importance to things that we have because some people don;t even have them.

      This project was extremely well-done from beginning to end. It was researched well and the presentation was thought provoking. I learned quite a bit, and I am impressed with the video.

      In this video, I can see that textile industry can also affect environment in a way that we’re unaware of. Gas, electricity, chemical substances are being consumed non-stop by the industry. This is very interesting how these students can point out how a certain industry at one local can contribute somehow very negatively to current environmental problem.

      In this video, we can see clearly how the environmental problems are caused by the textile industry in Lahore. Of course, government needs to take action on this problem. Anyway, this video is such a rare one that people can find it outside. It shows that you have put much effort [into making this video], so hard work will pay off one day. Cheers!

        It is a very good work. Your way of showcasing your concept through video is impressive, plus on a rarely heard topic. The length of the video is also acceptable. Using a video to reach out to the public is one of the best solutions of all, it gives the viewer the vision of reality and real actions without giving much caption or references. I learned a lot!

        Your explanation of the issues/problems facing India’s textile industry explains well the many hurdles facing those involved–from farmer to merchant–in the production of top quality cloth that is affordable and environmentally safe. The video gives further reality to the issues facing the merchants in the marketplace whose livelihood depends on selling quality cloth at an equitable price, but a price that is also wage appropriate for the seller. Great collaboration — well researched and presented. I, too, learned a lot from your project.

        Very interesting subject. In the West we label food based on calories (effect to the body) and for clothing and any other product it would be useful to create and develop labels and scales based on effects to the environment. I think that the video could have shown places where cotton is grown, dyes are manufactured and factories where garments are produced, rather than shops where they are sold – since the effect there to the environment seems very limited. Overall great topic, nice presentation and having reviewed it, I now know things that I did not before!

          This is a very well-done project with a lot of research put into it. There is a lot of great information that is in there, and is a topic that not everyone hears about very much. It is also great that there are thoughtful solutions that demonstrate the level of understanding in the project. Great work!
