Being one of the industries in general, the light industry has certain features affecting the environmental crisis, as a result of the rapid growth of enterprises, the increase in production at a huge rate, consumer demand. The reason for this is the massive pollution of the environment with all sorts of emissions and industrial waste, which affects such sub-branches of tourism, such as ecotourism. Light industry, which is one of the promising industries, has a negative impact on the water fund, due to the discharge of untreated effluents into surface water bodies, which requires improvement of mechanisms for the use of nature in this area.
