Faces of Dhaka

While tracing the journey of plastic in Dhaka, we‘ve been finding many places where it gets recycled.
This was a place where they collect PET bottles, remove labels and caps, sort by colour and then shred, clean and dry them (with a fan).
Was amazed by how beautiful the women looked in there, always wearing their colourful dresses. This lady wanted me to take a photo of her, if you look close you can see a slight smile on her face. :)
