                    DIFFERENT TYPES OF POLLUTION


Environmental Pollution


   Provide education                      
   Turning off a light switch when you leave a room
   Re-using grocery bags

   Buy products that are environmental friendly
      (e.g. recyclable products)

   Eat food that is grown locally. Food flown half way round
      the world has a larger carbon footprint.

   Drink water from the tap if it's potable. Billions of plastic   
      bottles are produced and then thrown away, every day.

   Cut down on your packaging, plastic bags and waste.
      Most of this is only used once and ends up in landfill.
             


Water Pollution



   Provide education  

   Use Green Household and Personal Care Products. Many
      of the chemicals found in our food, household cleaners,
      personal care products, and medications are all being
      dumped back into the waterways.

   Use Less Plastic and Don’t Litter.

   Recycling-various products should be recycled instead of
      dumping them into rivers, e.g., biogas can be made
      from city waste.
 


Air Pollution


   Provide education.

   Using smokeless sources of energy like smokeless stoves,
      which use biogas, solar energy, etc.

   Instead of driving, walk, bike, take public transit, or carpool.

   Don't smoke, smokers pollute the air.

   Turn off lights when you leave the room. The electricity plant
      likely puts pollution in the air. If you don't use as much
      electricity, they don't have to make as much.

   Same goes with heating/AC. They use power, which is usually
      made in ways that form air or water pollution. Put on warm
      clothes instead, or take them off if it’s hot.

   Add plants and trees to the surrounding environment.
