How can you help reduce air pollution at the individual level?

Answer :

Pollution is not a distant phenomenon anymore. It is affecting the quality of our day to day lives. We must realize our responsibility and should start using the following environment- friendly processes:

● We should switch to cleaner fuels like CNG- Compressed natural gas and LPG- Liquified petroleum gas for both industries and automobiles.


● Automobiles should also use unleaded petrol.


● We should plant more trees which will help to control deforestation.


● Industrial waste should be treated for harmful chemicals before discharging into air the water bodies.


● We must switch to alternative fuels instead of fossil fuels. Alternative sources of energy can be solar energy, hydropower and wind energy.


● We must encourage the use a public transport, a bicycle or walking for short distances. This will help to reduce the use of fossil fuels.


● Burning of plant waste also causes pollution by the emission of smoke. Plant waste must be put in a compost rather than burning.
