We all know the fact that global warming is getting more serious, but what most people don’t know is that "dirty snow" is a significant contributor to global warming. Some researches also indicate that dirty snow behind 20% of warming; the effect is the strongest in the Arctic.

Meltain is an eraser and a promotion of environmental consciousness to remind us how significant effect dirty snow has toward melting Arctic regions. To alleviate global warming is everyone’s duty; cutting down the emission of carbon as well as using environmental-friendly energy can all lighten the color of snow and thus slow down the speed of global warming.
