Couple Poses With Gas Masks For Their Wedding Photos To Protest Heavy Pollution In China

A couple of Chinese newlyweds decided to take their wedding photos in a dark and striking direction to protest their country’s out-of-control pollution. The two lovebirds took their wedding photos wearing gas masks to shield themselves from Beijing’s clouds of toxic smog.

Beijing has never been known as an especially clean city, but the toxic industrial clouds hovering over the city in the past few months have forced the government to impose limits on factories and power plants in the Beijing area. The level of toxic PM 2.5 particles, which are small enough to enter the bloodstream through the lungs, is more than 20 times higher than acceptable norms.

Beijing’s residents are now forced to wear dust masks to preserve their health, but this couple donned gas masks to underscore the fact that the city they were married in is becoming toxic and uninhabitable.
