Pollution is a devastating problem to our environment and is avoidable in many ways. There are many things that we can do right away to help reduce the amount of pollution in our environment, and here are just a few of them:
The first thing we can do is to stop littering. The types of products that we are littering on a daily basis is detrimental to our environment. This is a significant source of pollution and we can eliminate this source by simply disposing of our trash properly and not being lazy.
Another thing we can do is to recycle. Recycling never gets old, and is a great way to preserve natural resources. Not only does recycling preserve what we already have, recycling helps avoid filling up our landfills which can lead to environmental pollution. We also need to be resourceful and re-use things when we can such as plastic bags, etc.
Driving less can help reduce our air pollution. Cars emit harmful chemicals and other pollutants into the air on a daily basis as we drive. Planning our trips wisely to save on the amount of traveling and gas that we use can help reduce our air pollution.
