Pollution is increasing everyday around us. But what is pollution? Pollution is how toxins mix in the natural environment and make it harmful for the lives of human beings, animals and plants.
There are many forms of pollution like air, water, light and noise pollution. Most of these are caused by humans. For example, vehicles emit gases that pollute the air, while industries and household garbage pollute both water and air.
Every living being on Earth depends on air and water. When these two things get polluted, all living things on Earth are at risk. It is seen that urban areas get more contaminated than the rural zones , although the latter uses harmful pesticides in farming lands which harm the environment.
Because of pollution, many new diseases appear daily, which are extremely dangerous for the health of living beings.
It is this issue that is indirectly affecting the climate which is causing global warming. This problem needs immediate action, otherwise in the near future it will be a challenge to lead a healthy lifestyle.
I think that if we all give a small contribution we are helping our planet. For example we could apply the 3Rs: reduce, reuse and recycle. This is how we can at least minimize the severity of its effects.
