Effects of pollution

Pollution may muddy landscapes, poison soils and waterways, or kill plants and animals. Humans are also regularly harmed by pollution. Long-term exposure to air pollution, for example, can lead to chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer and other diseases. Toxic chemicals that accumulate in top predators can make some species unsafe to eat. More than one billion people lack access to clean water and 2.4 billion don’t have adequate sanitation, putting them at risk of contracting deadly diseases.

We would also be helping clean up our world and make it a prettier place if we helped stop pollution, and we would also be saving the lives of animals everywhere. What we can do is set out more trash cans and recycling bins so people won't have the urge to just drop their trash anywhere they go. We can also set up times when we all as a school go help clean up trash around rivers,streams,and roads. We can do all those things locally but if you would like to go worldwide to you can donate to The Ocean Clean up which helps pick up trash all over the ocean to save many animals lives every day.
