Cleaning up Land Pollution

Landfills are one of the largest types of pollution right now in the world, affecting not only the air quality but also leaving behinds hazardous materials that can severely harm animals scavenging for food, But with a lot of effort many landfill locations can be turned into a beautiful park.

Cleaning up water pollution

A majority of people rely on the water brought from lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans. Yet there are still a large number of places being polluted by illegal trash dumping, this not only affects the quality of the water but also affects the quality of life to many animals living near the polluted area.

Sunset Beach Milnerton

On September 21, 2013, over 100 students from Sinenjongo High School decided to clean up their local beach that has been polluted by years of trash dumping for coastal clean-up day. Now, the beach is a popular location for visitors and tourists, braving the cold weather and frigid rain, these students were able to make a trash dump into a beautiful beach once again.

Cleaning up air pollution

Air pollution is one of the most prominent pollution issues right now because of how it affects so many places and so many people. This type of pollution is also the most harmful because people living in cities with dangerous levels of pollution are breathing in these harmfully contaminated air.

Beijing Pollution Crisis

Beijing is the most well known polluted cities in the world, the level of pollution has gotten so bad that people seen wearing face masks are a common sight. A person's life span in Beijing is shorter than from people living in the countryside of china. Beijing has spent £75.8 billion to improve the air quality.
