Lungs of Earth

In our body, one of the respiratory system's main jobs is to remove waste gases. Forests and trees are like the "respiratory system" of the earth. That's how I got the inspiration for my artwork. In fact, a full-grown tree can absorb around 21 kilograms of carbon dioxide every year. This shows how trees played an important role in the combat with global warming. I am an eco-warrior and I deeply care about my impact on the environment. Since I learned about climate change in grade-3, I knew I want to make a change and raise awareness of the problem. Firstly, you can see all types of pollutions in the lungs, including e-waste, plastic, and food waste. I want to warn the viewer that space and time are running out and everyone needs to start making a change. Secondly, you can see blood dripping from the lung. I drew this to show that our "lungs of the earth" are overloaded with pollutions and they are tired. The roots of the trees are like the veins of our lungs, soaking all the waste and producing oxygen for us to breathe. I hope everyone who sees my artwork can understand the purpose of it. My dedication to the artwork is all worth it if they feel aware of climate change after seeing my drawing.
