It may seem harmless, but light pollution has far-reaching consequences that are harmful to all living things.

Less than 100 years ago, everyone could look up and see a spectacular starry night sky. Now, millions of children across the globe will never experience the Milky Way where they live.

Light pollution can:
✅disrupt wildlife
✅impact human health
✅waste money and energy
