On the outskirts of Kolkata, men carry baskets of leather trimmings to a large cauldron for burning. The small pieces are burnt, dried and then sold for use as fertilizer or as food for farm animals. Burning of the leather produces harmful gases that are released into the air. Workers often have little to no protection. India. November, 2013
