HAUNTING PHOTOS OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION

You won’t believe it’s gotten this bad…

Pollution is a real issue.

Over the last decade humans have produced ten times as much plastic as we have in the last century, and each year we throw away enough of the material to circle the earth four times. Americans alone throw away approximately 35 billion water bottles a year, all of which are still in existence in some form or another as plastic takes anywhere from 500-1,000 years to disintegrate. The moral of this story? We use way too much plastic and that needs to change, or else we—and the environment—could be faced with some serious consequences.
