In order to clean up our Earth, the task is simpler than you might imagine. Recycling is one of the many actions we can take to help lessen the pollution everywhere. By recycling, we can reuse the extra plastic or paper left over to make something for better use than becoming poison for the environment. Not littering and picking up recyclable objects is also another action we can take to clean the world. One specific way of life some people live to help not pollute the Earth is living a zero waste lifestyle.
Recycling is the process of reusing items that would be discarded as waste. It is also the process of making waste materials into a useful materials and new objects. It is an alternative waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas effect or emission. There are different kinds of recycling which involves adding value to a recycled item and can be reuse. There are benefits of recycling materials first, it prevents pollution in land, water, and air by reducing the things that can destroy or pollute the environment.
POLLUTION Pollution is a big problem now. A lot of people thinks that they don`t pollute because they don`t throw trash on the floor, but this is just one little part of pollution. Pollution is any damage that we cause to the environment and nobody can live without polluting our planet. If we just think of washing our hands with soap, even with natural soap, this already is pollution. We know many different kinds of pollution.
One way we can minimize pollution is through recycling garbage. When people burn garbage, this can harm the ozone layer and produce harmful gases which can lead to respiratory diseases like cough and asthma among others. When garbage is thrown in the ocean, it could kill and affect our marine resources and coral reefs. That’s why every time we reuse plastic bottles, disposable cups and utensils, paper, and other plastic products, we get to save the earth and even millions of lives from the harmful effects of pollution. As more waste is put into landfills, the bigger the problem gets.
Pollution isn’t only, caused by pollution alone, but it’s also caused by the humans that throw garbage and chemicals out. Believe it or not, but garbage that’s dumped into the rivers or the oceans is a factor in water pollution. The reason why the garbage is dangerous is that it isn’t any normal garbage, but its industrial waste that contains toxic and some of them even contains radiations. It often occurs in poor countries because they don’t have many effective measurements against garbage dump, therefore, the pollution has become the leading cause of death. Another factor is pesticides and fertilizers that often is used in agriculture, but it has its upsides and downsides, it increases and protects the crops, on the other hands it can cause dead zones and damage the consumers, as the humans and the
One way to prevent this from happening could be to recycle electronic waste because they contain mercury, a toxic substance that can leak into water bodies such as groundwater (www.everythingconnects.org). Plants and animals that come into contact with mercury in these water bodies are poisoned. This causes high mortality rates and strange behaviors in animals. In short, with the growing number of electronic devices, it’s important not to just throw devices in the garbage after they die. Wireless providers such as AT&T and Sprint are happy to dispose of old devices correctly and countless other places are willing to recycle an old device (everythingconnects.org).
Research has shown, You may or may not know that our Earth has a hole in its ozone layer, due to society littering and polluting the air. Not only that, but by picking up everyday items such as soda cans and plastic bottles you can save hundreds, if not thousands of Animals; Such as birds, bunny's, ducks, deer, fish and not to mention seals and many more different kinds of Animals from choking and eating trash that can potentially kill them. Of course it may not seem like just the two of us can do much, but remember in theory a little can go far. So if each individual in this class could vow to just clean up after themselves, Recycling helps create awareness. Another benefit of recycling is the ripple effect it has on your community.
Naturally the plants would like all that carbon dioxide as a treat. But it is harmful to everything else and even an overdose to the plants would prevent them from doing their daily jobs. This is why as humans we need to do what we can by keeping our forests alive and stepping in the right
The term Waste is used to describe any unwanted material or substance arising from Various Manufacturing Processes or from Community and Household Activities. The Waste material may be Accumulated, Stored or treated Prior to being discarded or recycled. In general, Waste arises because of inefficient or improper use of Resources. The accumulation of waste can not only have degrading effects on the Environment but also pose a serious health hazard to the community. Waste is also an indicator of the over consumption of the Resources at hand.
Some short-term problems include injuries from broken bottles and rusted metal objects. On the other hand, the long-term problems that may arise from this problem are more serious and damaging to the health and environment. These long-term problems include reproductive disorders and respiratory problems due to pollution, soil and surface water contamination. The group realized that the barangay hall had a solution to the problem they were facing. The tarpaulin hung outside the barangay hall says "Gamot kong Kailangan, Basura and Pagkukunan" meaning that the barangay hall accepts the garbage of the households in exchange for medications that the people need.
