Recently I watched a documentary called ” Before The Flood ” starring Leonardo DiCaprio. At first I just clicked on the video out of random, but something about this documentary really caught my attention and I put my phone down and focused myself on what Leonardo was explaining in the beginning and realized it was about how our earth is being polluted. Understanding more about pollution and world problems really woke me up and reminded me that we still have these problems that need to be solved. Coming together as a people and getting information about this is important, change is important. This documentary has received a lot of controversy since it was released back in October. More people are being aware of pollution and understanding that earth is hurting.
” You are the last best hope of Earth. We ask you to protect it or we, and all living things we cherish, are history “.

Jaden Smiths Just Water
Jaden Smith has had the idea of helping the environment since he was 10.
Jaden Smiths quote at the 2016 Environmental Media Awards
” My passion for the environment started when I was young, I was 10 and I was surfing and I saw all of the water being pulluted by the plastics that were in the ocean and I started to study more and more in school and see the pacific patch was a real real thing and that bio plastics breaking down was a real thing and was getting in the food chain of everything that we eat in the ocean, and I was just so hurt by this because as 10 year old boy I had no idea that this was happening at all. I talked to my parents about it and said guys this is happening, I don’t know what to do, but I want to be apart of the solution and be apart of the change”.
Jaden Smith has created a water bottle that will help the environment. Just Water bottle is made out of 83%percent mineral resources. Jaden has dedicated his life on the bottle to make sure that one day it will be made out of 100% mineral resources. What I love about hearing this news is that it only shows that as a people we can help change the way we live and make the enviorment around us better.
Humans Are Also Effected By Pollution
Growing up I always worried about the animals around me. Doing more research and understanding that not only are we effecting animals, but we are also hurting ourself. Below is a list of side effects of being effected by pollution.
- Irritation to eyes
- Nassel passages
- 5.Other forms of respiratory infections
There are many ways to prevent pollution and help make the environment you live in better, it can be the most simipliest activity such as recycling etc. I feel that more people are becoming aware and are trying to make a change. Knowing how pollution effects your health is important. Large groups of people are coming together to make a change to help with the enviorment and making a difference in the world. The more we know the better, and faster we will see the results.
Thanks for reading!
