Dear editor,

Think about it and you can help by easily picking up rubbish you see and putting it securely into the rubbish bin! It’s not hard at all.

Have you ever noticed the scummy dirty look on rivers? Many causes of pollution include sewage and general littering.

The pollution of rivers and streams with chemical contaminants has become one of the most crucial environmental problems within the 20th century. Waterborne chemical pollution entering rivers and streams cause tremendous amounts of destruction.

Pathogens are another type of pollution that proves very harmful. They can cause many illnesses that range from typhoid and dysentery to minor respiratory and skin diseases.

Three last forms of water pollution exist in the forms of petroleum, radioactive substances, and heat. Petroleum often pollutes water bodies in the form of oil, resulting from oil spills.

Forget about plastic bags. They are very dangerous to birds and other native wildlife. Birds use littered plastic bags for their nests and end up getting caught /tangled in it and experience a horrible suffocation!

Use the green environmentally friendly bags! Put an End to Plastic Bags - it’s in your hands. It’s simple and inexpensive to make the change.
