This work is aimed at giving emphasis on the present pollution condition in dyeing & printing industries of Bangladesh due to different textile pollutant. Though the economy of our country is increasing day by day due to medium and small-scale industrial activities, the toxic waste discharge is contributing severe pollution to the environment by this dyeing & printing industry. The liquid & solid effluents from different industries are causing a major destruction to the environment, ecology, agriculture, aquaculture and public health since the development of textile industries in the country. So, it is high time to give a break to the pollution and time it out gradually to save the river system. It had become a prerequisite to take required steps to mitigate the pollution problems in each industrial establishment, particularly at dyeing and printing industries that are discharging massive amount of liquid effluent to the rivers every day. Here various types of pollution which is created by the textile dyeing & printing industries are discussed and some suggestions including raw materials purchasing, Eco-friendly dyeing etc. are point out for mitigation.
