From the landfills we use to dispose of our waste to the oil spills that destroy our oceans, mankind is on an unsustainable adventure to live an easier life. The only problem with this quest is that there is little regard shown for our environment. The amount of pollution mankind is creating is staggering. So much so that pollution is currently the number one killer worldwide.

It's not just people who are dying from the pollution either. Birds and mammals are unfortunate victims of our waste as well.

This obviously needs to change but how can we inspire people to limit their carbon footprint and live a cleaner life? Maybe these heartbreaking photos will do the trick.
