Air pollution is the accumulation in the atmosphere of substances that, in sufficient concentrations, endanger human health or produce other measured effects on living matter and other materials. Among the major sources of pollution are power and heat generation, the burning of solid wastes, industrial processes, and, especially, transportation.

You have the power to make everyday changes that will help prevent pollutants from reaching ours oceans: Keep trash and chemicals out of storm drains. This includes pet waste. Storm water from storm drains flows into the sea carrying pollutants. Plant a native plant garden, can help you reduce the use of water. Avoid use of chemical fertilizers. Recycle used motor oil. Don’t let motor oil spill on the ground because rain will wash it into the storm-water drains, and from there out to sea, where it can harm or kill marine life. Dispose of household cleaners properly.

It is extremely hard to imagine the modern agriculture without the pesticides but nonetheless using pesticides is very bad for our environment. They can easily become a main source of air and water pollution. The droplets of sprayed pesticides can travel a long distances carried by the wind. More chemicals used means bigger degradation of soil quality. They can also have serious negative impact on human health, not only cause skin irritation, blood and nerve disorders but also more serious such as tumors.

Wetlands are ecosystems and valued environments for many reasons: * They are highly productive ecosystems, are able to capture energy and provide food for many animals. * They provide important refuges for wildlife in times of drought. * They provide a natural water balance and help to provide protection against floods. * They have a role in providing water quality protection in the catchment by filtering pollutants such as sediments, nutrients, organic and inorganic matter and bacterias. * They support a wide variety of flora (plants) and fauna (animals) and form different habitats and ecosystems. *They provide nursery areas for fish, and breeding grounds for wildlife.

Recycling different products will help the environment. For example, we know that paper comes from trees and many trees are being cut down just to produce paper. By recycling it, we can help lessen the number of trees that are cut down. Products made from raw materials that came from our natural resources should be recycled so that we can help preserve the environment.
