Pollution are gases which damage our environment and are harmful. Pollution damages crops and if inhaled over a long period of time, can cause heart disease and lung cancer. Thankfully there are some ways to prevent pollution that I am going to share with you today.

One way to prevent pollution is to buy products that are recyclable or have recycling packaging. This is because incinerators and landfill sites both release harmful gases into the environment.

Another way of preventing pollution is to buy products without any toxins in them. Mercury is a toxin that can be found in thermostats and button batteries which is extremely harmful for the environment. Buying products that are free of toxins like Mercury can really help the environment.

One last way of preventing pollution is by trying to minimise use of your car and instead taking the bus or walking if possible. You could also consider switching to an electric car if possible because electric cars release less carbon dioxide then normal cars.

I hope this article has inspired you to get involved and try to prevent pollution.
