A breath of fresh air

The purpose of this image is to show that all human beings should have access to clean, fresh air. Fresh air is something that so many of us take for granted. We think that everyone has it, and we just forget about it. But what if you live in a city like Beijing? Beijing has such bad air pollution that sometimes, citizens have to wear a surgical mask when they go out, due to the particles that could be inhaled. If the don’t wear one, the smog and air quality could cause lung cancer, heart disease, asthma attacks, and much more. In addition, many people in China and other countries work minimum-wage jobs in factories without the safety gear that is needed. These workers often come into contact with toxic chemical gases, smoke, and more, which could lead to a plethora of illnesses.
