The Hindustan Unilever had dumped a huge amount of mercury in the Kodaikanal area of Tamil Nadu, without any safety measures. This had led to the spreading of several diseases in the vicinity and also has caused death of many children. In March 2001, the Unilever thermometer factory was shut down for environmental violations.

Today, the Unilever has its annual shareholder meeting in UK. While the company CEO will be talking about their achievements, they still have a pending task to do, which involves cleaning up of the company’s toxic mercury pollution in Kodaikanal.
