Pollution is the process of turning land, water, air or other parts of the environment dirty, unsafe and unsuitable. Pollution occurs through the introduction of contaminants into a natural environment. However, this contaminant doesn’t need to be tangible. According to the non-profit environmental organization called Pure Earth, pollution affects more than 200 million people. Yet, it is one the most ignored concepts in the modern world. Daily, you witness it, acknowledge it, and even contribute to it at times. Here are a few powerful pictures of pollution that will make you stop and think about the planet.
