How to help reduce the air pollution?
There’s nothing like opening the door and breathing fresh, clean, air—but how clean is the air you’re breathing right now?
In the most big cities the air is polluted, but together we can change it! 🙂
What is air pollution?
Air pollution is a gas (or a liquid or solid dispersed through ordinary air) released in a big enough quantity to harm the health of people or other animals, kill plants or stop them growing properly, damage or disrupt some other aspect of the environment (such as making buildings crumble), or cause some other kind of nuisance (reduced visibility, perhaps, or an unpleasant odor).
What are the causes?
Anything people do that involves burning things , using household or industrial chemicals (substances that cause chemical reactions and may release toxic gases in the process), or producing large amounts of dust has the potential to cause air pollution.
1. Some factories and Heat Power Stations, which we don’t know what they are burning.
2.Cars – there are millions of cars on the road everyday!
3.In the winter – people are burning coals in order to warm their households. The smoke it’s really bad and toxic for us.
The combustion of coal releases mercury, so think twice before considering using it.
4.The worst is the poorest households are burning garbage, such as: tires, plastic things, pvc window frames and etc.
How can we decrease the pollution?
Well, at least we can do is to decrease the usage of our cars. I know in winter is nicer, hotter and sometimes faster to use our cars, but try to use more the public transport and whenever is possible bicycles. If you want to use a taxi, I recommend you using Spark. That’s electrical rental car. You are helping decreasing the air pollution and you don’t pay for charging the car, it’s free.
Don’t use coals for heating!
Don’t burn any shit! We are all breathing it.
What effects does air pollution have?
Air pollution can harm the health of people and animals, damage crops or stop them growing properly, and make our world unpleasant and unattractive in a variety of other ways.
We know air pollution is a bad thing without even thinking about it. Have you ever coughed when a truck drove past belching out its sooty exhaust? Instinctively, you cough to clear your lungs and protect your body and you might even cover your face with your handkerchief or sleeve to filter the air until it feels safe to breathe deeply again. You don’t have to be told that pollution like this might harm your health to want to steer clear of it: your body takes action automatically. The only trouble is, we can’t always see or smell air pollution, tell when it’s affecting us, or know how it might harm us days, months, or even years in the future.
Tip: Buy a mask with a filter even if you are not cycling 🙂 It’s very useful in big cities and in case of smog.
Thank you for reading my post and I hope that you learned something and I inspired you to change your habits a bit 🙂
I would love to hear your ideas and thoughts about the air pollution! 😉
