Pollution

We rely on Nature to:

  

  • provide us with food, water and shelter

  • regulate our climate and disease

  • maintain nutrient cycles and oxygen production

  • provide us with opportunities for recreation which can enhance our health and well-being.

  

But we also use the planet as a sink for our waste products, such as carbon dioxide, plastics and other forms of waste, including pollution.

  

This website zone focuses on pollution of all kinds and some of the things that we can do to reduce it. Initial content covers air quality, light pollution  and waterway pollution but there is more to come on plastics, pesticides and litter.
