Artist Eglė Plytnikaitė created a highly creative series of minimalist images that contain vital warning messages about being environmentally conscious. The images project the effects of global warming by combining an image of a negative act with overlaying image of how these acts are damaging.

The images range from air pollution to over-consumption of water. For example, there is an image of a smoke stack emitting pollution into the sky. Instead of a regular cloud in the sky, the image features a polar bear sitting atop a melting glacier that resembles a cloud.

The images are extremely clever and they address a highly discussed topic within society. The use of bright colors and simple illustrations show the cause and effect of being environmentally conscious. The use of such simple illustrations allows each picture to resonate with a wider audience.
