If one thing’s for certain, it’s that humans are pretty bad at mitigating long term detrimental effects in exchange for short term benefit…

Also, we don’t take good care of our planet. We’re getting better, but we still have a LOOOOOONG way to go.

We careless and wasteful, especially when it comes to harmful products. Plastic is King and we treat it as such. For now, at least.

Let’s take a look at 15 photos that prove we are totally, hopelessly addicted to plastic.
