Pollution and Rubbish

Water Pollution
Liquid waste dumped into rivers may poison wildlife and threaten supplies of drinking water for humans.

Dead Rivers
Industrial waste dumped into rivers can kill all life . Fertilizers can produce growth of algae , which absorb the oxygen the water , killing fish and plants .

Rubbish is created in large quantities and the world is running out of places to put it all. Recycling glass, paper and other waste reduces the need for dumping. Radioactive waste created by nuclear power stations remains dangerous for thousands of years.

What a load of Rubbish

Last week we went to see all the rubbish our school createdin one day. It wasn’t as much as expected. Sarah from Waste Education Services was the one talking to us about it. She and
some children from Rm 6 sorted it into groups, plastic, paper and food scraps. I’m glad I wasn’t sitting right in front of the food scraps- they smelt!

Some day this week we are going to try not to have any plastic in our lunch at all whatsoever. It’s amazing that only two people in the whole of another school forgot not to have plastic in their lunch.
