Pollution and Health T-Shirt
Despite the major efforts that have been made over recent years to clean up the environment, pollution remains a major problem and poses continuing risks to health.
What is pollution?
It’s any material introduced into the environment as the result of human activity that endangers human health or harms living resources and ecosystems.
Diseases caused by pollution lead to the chronic illness and deaths of about 8.4 million people each year.
There are many different types of pollution-related diseases, including those caused by air pollution, contaminated soil, water pollution and unsafe water, poor sanitation and hygiene.
It is clear that the problems are undoubtedly greatest in the developing world . The developed world though is not risk-free: developments, such as increased reliance on road transport, increased use of chemicals in agriculture, and increased proportions of time spent in modern, hermitically sealed buildings surrounded by chemically-based fabrics and furnishings may actually increase exposures and exacerbate health risks.
Besides climate change has potentially worsened levels of ambient air pollution and aggravated the effects of pollution on health.
Can we avoid pollution?
Many of these risks and health effects are readily avoidable. Rarely does the solution lie in advanced technologies or even expensive drugs. Instead, the need is for preventive action to reduce the emission of pollutants into the environment in the first place and that is largely achievable with existing know-how. Indeed, in many cases it has already been implemented in many of the richer countries.
The deficit of action that has allowed environmental pollution still to take its toll on health derives not so much from failures in science or technology as from the lack of political will and economic empowerment.
The good news is that both pollution and climate change can be mitigated by transition toward a more sustainable economy.
This is the direction to salvation.
April 22 is the annual worldwide event celebrating the Earth Day to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
This artwork represents the close link between Nature and Humans. From this perspective, humans need Nature to live, need a clean environment, need clean air to breath thus need to take responsibility and action to sustain, protect and support, nature, the planet, the environment.
Below some links related the Pollution and Health news:
The News On T-Shirt artworks are created by different international artists in different stiles and techniques: 3d, 2d, painting, photo … you name it.
Our talented and growing team of artists first chose a news to draw and then they dedicate their time skills and passion to create a visual representation of it.
It’s an exciting creative process where they experiment and play with artistic tools. They also read, learn, research in order to deliver a complex message making it simple and entertaining.
We like the idea of wearing our own designs while delivering a message through it.
It’s our way of spreading world news around, creating inspiring artworks and wearing them on.
In conclusion we’d like to share with you our motto. “There is no limit to our imagination, especially if we are having fun along the journey!”
We hope you like our project!
