Over the years, Chattogram’s Ananda Bazar has become a hub for discarded plastic products. Gathered from all across the city, they are processed and exported to countries like China and Turkey, for reuse and recycling. Amidst the looming threat of the climate crisis, this is a step towards addressing environmental concerns, which also creates an alternative way to earn foreign currencies along the way. This photo was taken on Sunday. Photo: Rajib Raihan
As the surge in food prices continues, the slump in demand has started to hit sellers of all kinds -- from wholesalers to the street-side vendor. One such seller, who buys leftover vegetables from Karwan Bazar’s wholesalers and sells them at half price by the streets of Tejgaon, was found taking a nap in the middle of the day. With customers free and far between, what else could she even do? This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Palash Khan
As the shopping malls in the capital’s Elephant Road area are closed on Tuesdays, a number of sellers open “shop” on their stairways. They sell everything from trousers to jackets, collected from various shops and factories, at a cheaper price, always attracting a good crowd. This photo was taken yesterday. Photo: Rashed Shumon
