This collaborative exhibition with the Environmental Justice Foundation (EJF) highlighted their campaign to end the abuse of labour rights in the cotton production industry in Uzbekistan.

Cotton is grown in over 80 countries and valued at over $30 billion annually. Countless people across the world are exploited and abused by the extremely lucrative cotton production industry. Several of the world's top cotton producing countries use children in the field.

The exhibition explored how the cotton supply chain works, how we as consumers are part of this chain, and how we can make a difference. Follow the links below to find out more.
