Tip of the Day: Ways to Avoid Water Pollution
I remember being shocked when I learned that only one percent of water on this earth is available for human consumption.
And because of companies dumping chemicals into our water sources, individuals throwing garbage into bodies of water near urban areas, and chemical runoff polluting our groundwater, the amount of clean water available to humans is quickly decreasing.
Use less water this might sound simplistic, but decreasing your water consumption is one of the keys to minimizing water pollution.
Use environmentally-friendly household products do not use household products that contain chemicals. Apply natural pesticides and fertilizers, the use of chemical pesticides and fertilizers leads to water pollution because contaminated water seeps into ground water and runs off into nearby water sources.
Do not litters avoid littering in rivers, lakes, and oceans.
Dispose of toxic products with care Make sure to dispose of toxic products, such as paints, solvents, and polishes, in the proper area.
