India – West Bengal: Bags belonging to stonecrushers in the Diana riverbed at Red Bank Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. The garden, which houses 888 workers out of a population of 5,000 people, shut down and reopened several times in the past 12 years. It has now been closed since 2013, forcing its workers to resort to stonecrushing in order to survive.
