It can also cause harm to animals that drink from such polluted water. Soil contamination: Hazardous chemicals that get into the soil (contaminants) can harm plants when they take up the contamination through their roots. If humans eat plants and animals that have been in contact with such polluted soils, there can be negative impact on their health. Pollution: Bad waste management practices can result in land and air pollution and can cause respiratory problems and other adverse health effects as contaminants re absorbed from the lungs into other parts of the body.
Leached Liquid that forms as water trickles through contaminated areas is called cachet. It forms very harmful mixture of chemicals that may result in hazardous substances entering surface water, grog underwater or soil. Economic Effects Municipal wellbeing: Everyone wants to live and visit places that are clean, fresh and healthy. A city with poor sanitation, smelly and with waste matter all over the place does not attract good people, investors and tourists. Such cities tend to have poor fining standards.
Recycling revenue: Cities that do not invest in recycling and proper waste control miss out on revenue from recycling. They also miss out on job opportunities that come from recycling, composting and businesses that work with them. Play your part! Efficient and effective waste management is best achieved at household levels. If every person gets involved, we can have a powerful effect on the our environment in a positive way. Many times, people want to do the right things but they feel they are alone, ND their actions will not make any difference -? Wrong!!
There are millions of great teens like you who appreciate the magnitude of the waste problem and are doing the right things to help. But we can do more and get others who are not doing well to do better. Here is what you can do: Reduce creating waste The next time you change the waste-bin bag, take a look inside it. Is there anything that could have not ended up there? Probably. Try cutting the waste you produce at home into half. For example, Use proper towels and ceramic plates at home instead of paper towels, disposable spoons and paper plates.
Get your own shopping bag instead of bringing home plastic bags each time you go grocery shopping. Use old post package boxes to send parcels instead of buying new ones. Re-use things that end up as waste There are things that can be used over and over again: package boxes, gift wrappers, clothing, furniture and even playing toys. If even you have outgrown them, you can give it out to someone who has a need for it. Do not be too quick to throw them away.
