Pollution:how to tackle


Air pollution is an epidemic that is growing all over the world. The quality of the air we breathe is getting worse every day. A study conducted by WHO says that 9 out of 10 people inhale contaminated air daily, and somewhere around 7 million people die annually because of health complications caused by air pollution.

In India, a report published by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) revealed that 12,40,000 people died in the year of 2017, because of ill effects of air pollution. The quality of air is decreasing day-by-day, and if we dont act now, the day of airpocalypse is not far from us. Every human soul on earth can make a change; you only need to realize your real value, which is far above your paycheque. You can be a difference that might save our environment and make the world a better place. 

Ways To Reduce Air Pollution 

There are many things that you do in your day-to-day life that might affect our environment in a good or in a bad way. A small change can make a significant difference in reducing air pollution in our country. Start with the following changes:

1. Carpooling

It will not only reduce air pollution caused by fumes emitted by your vehicles but will also reduce traffic. It would help if you took the initiative and carpool with friends, family, and colleagues.

2. Stop Burning Waste

One of the primary causes of rising air pollution in our country, especially in the Delhi NCR region, is because of the burning of garbage, old leaves, and tires. It should be made a punishable offense to burn waste material. The government should generate helpline numbers and emails so that people can report such incidents.

3. Solar Power

Solar panels should be installed in every household, multi-story buildings, and offices. This will reduce the production of electricity via coal-based thermal power plants, which is adversely affecting our environment.

4. CNG Is Your Friend

Encourage CNG in motor vehicles as it is much cleaner fuel than petrol and diesel.

5. Recycle, Reuse, And Reduce

Avoid using plastic bags and try to reuse paper bags.
