Our environment is constantly changing. The need to be aware of our environment is now more than ever. The climate changes, global warming, increasing pollution levels have created a hazardous situation for humans. There are many environmental problems that we face all around us. The most dangerous ones are those that we face in our own locality. A few of them are mentioned below:
a) Waste disposal: It is said that n average person disposes of 4.6 pounds of trash per day. Sadly, most of the people tend to throw waste on the road or on the empty plots. Despite, proper trash cans set up everywhere and the arrangement of a sweeper who can collect the trash from your doorstep, people tend to dispose of waste in the wrong places.
b) Water scarcity: People have taken water for granted. The continuous waste of water in the household and building maintenance have created a serious issue of water scarcity.
c) Urban Sprawl: With more and more people shifting to urban areas, the housing problems have been on the rise. Any small empty plot is converted into a multi-story apartment. This has made the locality very congested and increased the traffic issues.
d) Diseases: The diseases have been on a continuous rise due to water logging and inappropriate waste disposal. The children are being affected by it the most.
