You can help with this problem! A solution for pollution on the water is to recycle and use more biodegradable things like paper and corn. You can even get reuse able thing like bags so you don't even have to throw them out!
And by not using plastic we have no need to burn trash so my icecaps will stop melting from all the carbon dioxide pollution and global warming.
Everything helps. from something as little as turning off the tap when you're brushing your teeth or turning off the lights so you use less energy. If a bunch of people did this every day imagine how big the impact would be on saving the environment and sustaining water.
Plastic takes at least 1000 years to decompose. That means plastic lives longer than we do! And adding on future generations that will use more plastic creating a toxic plastic mountain of trash. We need to get rid of one time use plastic.
Making plastic costs energy and energy is usually coal or oil and coal and oil emit extreme amounts of Co2 when burned. Last year every nation combined had emitted 38.2 billion tons of carbon into the atmosphere. Affecting health and climate.
Taking shorter showers and turning off the faucet when brushing your teeth saves up to 200 gallons of water per month. Small actions make a big deal.
