Did you know that pollution kills 9 million people each year? That’s 1 out of every 6 deaths. Pollution kills three times as many people as HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria COMBINED. It kills 15 times as many people as all wars and other recorded forms of violence. In 2015 alone, over 6.5 million deaths were linked to poor air quality. Another 1.8 million were linked to water pollution. Most deaths were seen in countries like India, China, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. In America, 150,000 people suffered pollution-related deaths, but we don’t have to lean into this trend. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
