With another year on the horizon, millions of people on social media are partaking in a viral new craze. It's called the #10YearChallenge, and the dare is simple: share two photos of yourself taken a decade apart and laugh at the contrast.

It was all fun and games - until we involved the environment.

Even though it can be fun to reflect on how much we change - or don't change - as individuals, it's way more terrifying to realise how much the face of our planet has been altered in just ten years.

Greenpeace was one of the first environmental organisations to poop all over the party, sharing a photograph of deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.

With a new Brazilian president promising to harvest even more of this region's precious resources, a reminder of our current destruction is pertinent, albeit discouraging.

"That which took nature hundreds of thousands of years to create, humans have destroyed in less than ten," the post reads.
