Our world is beautiful; we’ve filled it with magic, life, love and unfortunately, a lot of pollution and garbage. These pictures from around the world capture the problems we’ve created for our planet. These are massive problems that have been going on for so long, that it seems like we’ve forgotten about them.
Even seeing these pictures isn’t enough to compel us into action. The good news is it’s never too late to take action – it would have been a lot of effective 10 years ago, but we can still remedy our global mistakes. It takes a passion so fiery that we stop at nothing to reverse these effects – and it’s going to take all of us to make it work.

And then the sad epitome of modern society. Taken in 2007, Boise, Idaho. Is this what our world has come to? The good news is it doesn’t have to be this way; we are all choosing to continue to live in a world where this is considered normal. We have set the standards and it’s never to late to shift them.
