A Killer Bargain
This film examines the availability of cheap consumer goods whose prices don't reflect the human and environmental costs of their production. The film examines the practices of western companies operating in India. They present the use of cancer-causing pesticides by workers in cotton fields, open tanks of chlorine gas in textile factories, and plants that discharge waste into ponds thus polluting the surrounding farmland. This video explains that it is up to consumers to hold companies accountable for the conditions under which their products are produced.
