Levi's, Stop Polluting Mexico's rivers

Photo | 5 December, 2012

17 activists spread a thousand square meter yellow arrow banner pointing at the waste water treatment plant for Lavamex - one of Levi's suppliers in Mexico. The banner (bearing Levi's logo) reads: "LEVIS, Stop Polluting Mexico's rivers" and "Queremos Ríos Sin Tóxicos" (in Spanish). The Lavamex facility is operating with little transparency and under weak Mexican laws, which allow them to avoid scrutiny of their manufacturing processes. Greenpeace discovered nonylphenol (NP), a hormone disruptor during tests from a Lavamex discharge pipe. Aguascalientes, Mexico. 12/05/2012
