Transcript of Pollution

design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Hello,our names are Ashlynn,Skyla and Frances.We will be talking about different types of dangerous pollution that is harming the environment today.
Written by: Frances, Skyla, and Ashlynn

Clean and plentiful water provides the foundation for prosperous communities. We rely on clean water to survive, yet right now we are heading towards a water crisis. Changing climate patterns are threatening lakes and rivers, and key sources that we tap for drinking water are being overdrawn or tainted with pollution.
Protecting Clean Water

Dirty water is the world's biggest health risk, and continues to threaten both quality of life and public health in the United States. When water from rain and melting snow runs off roofs and roads into our rivers, it picks up toxic chemicals, dirt, trash and disease-carrying organisms along the way.

Many of our water resources also lack basic protections, making them vulnerable to pollution from factory farms, industrial plants, and activities like fracking.

How can students like you make a difference/get involved in this issue?
Students like me can make a difference/get involved in this issue by telling or encouraging your family to use the bus,train,etc.Also if we all do this,there will be less cars on the road and less fumes.
What suggestions you would have to encourage eco-friendly practices?
The suggestions I would have to encourage eco-friendly practices is by encouraging people to walk instead of taking the car if they live close. Also,when you use more then one car you can car pool and when using lots of cars causes harm for the environment which is called,air pollution.


-Promoting water efficiency strategies to help decrease the amount of water wasted

-Helping prepare cities, counties and states for water-related challenges they will face as a result of climate change

-Ensuring that waterways have enough water to support vibrant aquatic ecosystems.
Things that you and me can do
to prevent this from happening
-Try to by more plant-based products
-Be more conscience of what you put in the garbage and recycling
-try to use the compost bin

and so much more
Let's do something
So what ,I'm trying to say is that if
the water starts dying off we start dying off and I'm pretty sure any of you want to die quite yet or at least I don't want to .

Air Pollution
Help keep the
Things we all can do to help reduce air pollution.
Limit driving by carpooling, using public transportation, biking and walking.
Conserve energy – remember to turn off lights, computers, and electric appliances when not in use.
Seal containers of all household cleaners.
Seal garden chemicals to prevent organic compounds from evaporating into the air.

is an environmental issue?
is an environmental issue because pollutants like tiny airborne particles and ground level ozone can trigger respiratory problems especially, for people with asthma.
Facts about air
Why is
an important environmental issue??
Land pollution is an important enviornmental issue because maybe in a few years the country could be covered by rubish and garbage and soon after that the whole world will be cover in suage and garbage and human and all biotic life could die out.
What suggestion would you have to encourage
Some suggestion I have to have a more eco-friendly world is that we could all, instead of going in separate cars that are going to the same place we can carpool to work, school, or any place else.
Another suggestion I have is that we can take the bus or train when we are going somewhere far, to work, or even to a party. We can also ride a bike or walk to places that are close by for example I live near up the street so I can just walk there instead of have to make my dad or mom drive me there.
We can also use reuseable stuff like lunch containers and lunch bags instad of paper bags and plastic wrap for sandwhiches also instead of plastic non-reuseable water bottles we can use metal or reuseable plastic water bottles
How can students like you make a
in this issue?
Students like you and me can make a difference and get involved in this issue by helping out clean up even if just for the small stuff like put the right items in the right bins for example: I can put the garbage in the garbage bag and the recycables in the reycling bin and if youhave a green bin or compost bin at home you can put the leftovers in there.
You can also help by, lets say you and your friends are planning to go out you can ask if one of your parents are willing to drive all of you to wherever you guys are going depending on how many of you there are.
Lastly, you can help make a difference by using G.O.O.S paper (Good On One Side)
Here is a little video about
Here are some fun facts about

The biggest global killer in the world right now is Land pollution affecting more than 100million people every 2-3 years
Over 1billion people die every 5-10 years. Over 5,00 people die because of the Pollution. They also die because of dirty drinking water because of the garbage that leaks into the water pipes.
an estimated 14billion pounds of garbage are dumped into the sea every year.
Americans hold 5% of the worlds population and then produces 30% of the worlds waste and pollution. They also use up 25% of the worlds resourses.
Recycling and composting pervent 85million tons of material away from being dumped into landfills as in 2010, up from 18million tons in 1980.
We hope you enjoyed our prezi presntation
