Waste and Pollution .
Pollution is defined as anything that makes an environment harmful or unpleasant for living organisms. Waste is created by all lifeforms. Solid, gaseous and liquid waste create serious problems for humans and the environment if they are not treated, transported and managed safely. When solid waste does not pose a threat to the environment or human health it is classified as non-hazardous.
Throwing it away causes environmental problems. Plastic pollution has a couple of obvious solutions. That’s just one example of a hazard that we know about. How many poisons and environmental problems remain undiscovered? We don’t even understand the long-range consequences of the ones we do know about. Most substances break down into something else.

Recycling will reduce the amount of waste of landfills which is potentially hazardous for the environment. Recycled materials might be cheaper than the virgin materials for manufacturers and this can help to reduce the price of those products. Composting is another way to recycle which improves soil and keeps organic wastes like the garden waste, kitchen leftovers etc. out of the landfills. We need a variety of product every day to fulfil our basic needs whether we are in the office or home or anywhere else. But is high time we learned to reduce the amount of trash we produce every day. I am proving some tips here just to give you an idea on it –.

There are many ways we can help to sustain our environment. We are consumers in the society of today. Unfortunately because of this fact, we are also trash makers and very wasteful. Now more than ever we need to be concerned with consumption and waste. If millions of people changed just one or two habits in their life we could make a huge difference. It is said that we are killing our earth with all the chemicals and trash we are filling it with. There is a point that is not taken very often.

How is the environment affected by all this waste and pollution? When people litter, it pollutes our envi-ronment with garbage that. Animals drink dirty, polluted water and they get sick. Maybe, if more people did care, we would have cleaner. If we continue what we are doing, most of our natural resources would be gone and our future generations would have nothing to survive on. We should focus more on renewable energy sources like the wind, sun, and maybe even rain instead of wasting all of our fossil fuels. We also need to do more with our trash instead of burning or burying it.
