The quality of the air influences people's lives. Living in an environment free of pollution brings a better quality of life. But, with the increase of industrialization and the concentration of poisonous gases in the environment, the air is getting worse as time goes on. Air pollution is a problem across the world and probably the most serious environmental problem today. The mask, tube and container are completely made from plastic, which is a pollutant. Inside the container there is a plant which represents the trees that are supposed to give us the oxygen that we need to breathe. However, the plant is dead, representing that the clock is ticking and we are running out of time to find a solution that can save our planet.
