ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION
Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural
environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form
of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light.
There are different types of pollution such as air, water, soil,
radioactive, thermal, noise, light and visual pollution, and littering.

" This entire planet is our home. We are the only species that
systematically destroy our own habitat."

-Marianne Williamson

WATER POLLUTION
Water Pollution occurs when harmful substances are released
into the water in large quantities which cause damage to people,
wildlife or habitat or indirectly into water bodies without proper
treatment to remove harmful compounds.

EXAMPLES OF WATER POLLUTION :

ROLE OF AN INDIVIDUAL IN
PREVENTING WATER POLLUTION
Industry is responsible for a large amount of pollutants that pollute
water.
By properly disposing of all wastes, we can help to reduce the
amount of water pollution that is created.
Never throw, run or drain or dispose into the water that shall cause
pollution.

AIR POLLUTION
The contamination of air by smoke and harmful gases and the
addition of harmful chemicals to the atmosphere results in air pollution.

EXAMPLES OF AIR POLLUTION:

ROLE OF AN INDIVIDUAL IN PREVENTING


AIR POLLUTION
Stop smoking or at least follow the No Smoking sign.

Use unleaded gasoline in your cars.

Keep your car properly maintained to keep it in good running


condition to avoid smoke emissions.

Share a ride or engage in car pooling.

Instead of using your cars, choose to walk or ride a bicycle


whenever possible. With this eco-friendly practice, you will also be
healthier and happier by staying fit.

Never use open fires to dispose of wastes.

Industries should use fuel with lower sulphur content.

Industries should monitor their air emissions regularly and take


measures to ensure compliance with the prescribed emission
standards.

SOIL POLLUTION

Soil Pollution is defined as the presence of (pollutants of


toxic chemicals or contaminants) in soil of high concentration
which leads to risk in human health and ecosystem.

EXAMPLES OF SOIL POLLUTION:

ROLE OF AN INDIVIDUAL IN PREVENTING


SOIL POLLUTION

Adopt the 3Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse and


recycle.

Start composting brown leaves in your yard and green scraps from
your kitchen. It will reduce waste while improving your yard and
garden soils.

Use eco-friendly or biodegradable materials instead of plastic


which are made up of highly toxic substances injurious to your
health.

Have a proper waste disposal system especially for toxic wastes.

Organic waste should be dumped in places far from residential


areas.

MANDATORY REMINDER FROM CNN.


NASA reports that by the next 10 months, earth gets hotter by 4

degrees from now. Himalayan glaciers are melting at rapid rate. Our
climate is changing drastically & it's getting worst. We must help fight
Global Warming by doing the following steps:
1. Plant more trees
2. Don't waste water
3. Use cloth bag and don't burn plastic

Consider these . . .

Breathing is life. We know that we will survive without food for


several weeks and without water for few days, but without oxygen, we
will die in a matter of minutes. The oxygen, the air we breathe sustains
us. So, let us make today and everyday a good day for everyone. Allow
the earth to have more clean air. Help control pollution

One person alone cannot save the planets biodiversity,


but each individuals effort to encourage natures wealth must
not be underestimated.
