A Sea of Plastic
We’ve seen how humans destroy the planet in various ways. This is one of them. As this poor man tries to collect plastic, more piles up. The result is this towering mountain of plastic, with no hopes of letting up. There’s nothing we can do about it except to lessen the amount of plastic we consume, which will rarely happen unless we take a true stance against plastic consumption.
We’re using more than we can get rid of, which is why the build-up is happening at such a rapid rate. Places that rely heavily on single-use plastic, like places in Asia, are seeing a spiraling effect of waste that’s affecting their health and well-being. Toxic fumes are leaking into their waterways, and the air is so polluted that it’s becoming dangerous to breathe (People).
