Pollution is a major problem worldwide, affecting over 100 million people across the globe. A major source of this pollution is the unethical disposal of pollutants by businesses into the air, land, and water supply. This can cause long-term damage to the environment if not properly addressed.
Types of Pollution
Air pollution – The disposal of hazardous gasses or other pollutants into the air causes major problems for the environment. A common source of these pollutants is fumes from factories and large vehicles, such as semi trucks.
Land pollution – This type of pollution is caused by improper littering and disposal of various waste materials, including plastic, oil, chemicals, and polluted water. Garbage is a major source of land pollution when it is not properly handled and disposed of.
Water pollution – Improper disposal of solid and liquid waste into water supplies, including plastics and chemicals, causes water pollution and damages marine ecosystems.
Action Steps to Reduce Pollution
Just as individuals are finding ways to reduce their negative impact on the environment, businesses need to find ways to properly handle waste so that it doesn’t pollute the air, land, and water.
Focus on Recycling – Many businesses do not participate in recycling efforts. Finding a way to recycle, or better yet, reduce, the use of plastic bags, bottles, and packaging will help decrease the amount of plastic that ends up in landfills.
Choose Eco-Friendly Technology – New technology is being introduced all the time that focuses on greener practices. For example, water recycling systems can treat wastewater with microbial technology so that it can be reused over and over, decreasing the disposal of contaminated water into the environment.
Use Alternative Sources of Energy – Businesses should make the switch to greener energy sources, such as wind and solar power, instead of relying on fossil fuels. This will help reduce the amount of fumes emitted into the air by factories and large vehicles, such as semi trucks.
Small changes can potentially make a big impact on the environment when it comes to the practices of big businesses. If individuals and businesses join together in their efforts to reduce air, water, and land pollution, we may be able to change the course of the pollution problem.
