These Heartbreaking Photos Show The Real Effect Humans Are Having On The Rest Of The Planet

Warning: These photos are really hard to look at...

These photos are hard to look at, but without them we can sometimes forget the reality of what effect the pollution and waste produced by humans has on the rest of the planet.

Each person in the Western world generates around 4.31 pounds of trash every single day and that number will only continue to rise.

There will be 15 billion people living on planet Earth in 64-years, we can’t continue to pollute the planet at the rate we currently do.

This is the real effect the human race has on the planet each and every day…
