Black CircleI’m thinking about a river which flows through forests and cities. People seem to be growing increasingly greedy, and the prospect of profit is tempting enough for companies to risk the disruption of the river’s ecosystem by disposing of their factories’ waste in said river. Even those who in their daily life rely on the river are unaware of the fact that they are destroying their own lives in this way. They are acting blindly and do not understand the importance of recycling.
Because of this greed, people also destroy their forests without thinking about the consequences this might have regarding climate change. Since life along the river is getting harder, people start looking for a better life in the cities, but here, space is limited. More and more emissions, less forest, increasingly rough nature. This is how the tragic story comes full circle.
