Different types of pollution
By Evelyn Kay, Year 7
Pollution is a worldwide problem. There are many different types of pollution from air pollution consisting of harmful gases let out into the air, and water pollution which is when the water gets contaminated with waste such as chemicals, litter, and harmful gases.
There is also land pollution. This occurs when people leave waste like litter on the floor. Landfill sites are an example of land pollution, again where rubbish and food are left there to decompose improperly, and uncovered.
Sound pollution is another contribute to harming animals and the environment, it is where there is lots of constant noise close by to wildlife and animal habitats.
Finally, there is also light pollution, which is where there is a lot of unnatural light produced usually in large towns or cities that disturbs the wildlife around.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at how we can reduce pollution, starting at Darwen Vale. Watch this space!
