Pictures of Environmental Protection
Imagine a world with less pollution. Can you? Clean water. Clean air. Cross those concerns off your list of life worries. How about a world without litter or less trash? Not only would our environment be more beautiful, it would be healthier for all of us.
Join us as we celebrate Pollution Prevention Week. The 1990 federal Pollution Prevention Act states that “pollution should be prevented or reduced at the source whenever feasible”. We can all help meet this goal by throwing out less stuff, landscaping with native plants and using as little fertilizer as possible, and using more energy efficient products. For other ideas, we’ve got tips for preventing pollution at home and work.
We know that many of you are doing your part, so share the good news: what’s being done in your community to prevent pollution? We’ll spread the goodness around for more to see. State of the Environment is open to pictures of our lives and planet as you see it. Each individual scene, taken together, will build the larger picture of our environment today. Photos taken from 2011 until the end of 2013 may be submitted on Flickr. All levels of photography experience and skill are welcome.
