God created such a beautiful place for us to live comfortably. Millions of years ago the natural waste decomposed and formed coal and petrol. We harnessed that energy to live a luxurious life, this luxury has given so much non-decomposable waste that is littering here and there. It has increased to such an extent that it is affecting the living beings nearby. We live in such a wasteful society that this wastefulness directly affects our environment and everyone in it. Here are some of haunting photos of pollution on wildlife and people, in the hopes that it may open the eyes of people and create awareness among them of this serious issue such that immediate steps can be taken to clean our only planet earth.

1. Pollution is a real issue

Over the last decade humans have produced 10 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 4 times. Americans alone throw away approximately 35 billion water bottles a year. All of them still exist because it takes 500-1000 years to decompose. We must change our lifestyle to combat these consequences.
