Dwarakish (2015) in their article of Costal Pollution review they studied the harmful effects of various substances on the marine environment were reviewed by collecting and studying the relevant literature.

Many of the pollutants that are let into the sea are directly or indirectly by human activities. Some of these substances are biodegradable, while some are not.

I believe this act was very necessary in keeping freshwater and the breathable air clean. The current events occurring in politics regarding environmental policy fuels me to want to try harder to protect the natural world. I want, even more so, to educate people about how their actions could be more thoughtful and help the world, and future generations immensely in the long

A significant number of international human rights and environmental instruments show how environmental protection contributes to the enjoyment of human rights. Human rights became a focus of international law long before environmental concerns did. While the United Nations Charter of 1945 marked the beginning of modern international human rights law, the Stockholm Declaration of 1972 is generally seen as the starting point of the modern international framework for environmental protection. Certain international human rights instruments concluded after the 1972 United Nations Conference on the Human Environment explicitly recognized the linkage between human rights and the environment. For example, the Convention on the Rights of the Child refers to the environment , article 24, requires States to pursue the full realization of the right of the child to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of health taking into consideration the dangers and risks of environmental pollution.
Environmental laws are a set of rules and regulations devised to protect and conserve our environment by regulating activities which cause any sort of pollution such as fossil fuel emissions and dumping of wastes. These laws enable us to limit the existing pollution causing factors and even provide regimes of protection of the endangered life forms. Environmental laws function as a collective body of rules and regulations concerned with the maintenance and effective protection of the natural environment of a country. These laws provide us with a basis for measuring failure in adhering to legal provisions. The constitution of our country clearly states that it is the duty of the state to ‘protect and improve the environment and to safeguard
