Littering and its impact
Different Pollutions
Hurting animals!
Many animals confuse plastic bags, balloons, bait packets, lolly wrappers and rubber with prey and eat them. Many animals are injured, become ill, and die each year due to human carelessness with litter and pollution. Animals can swallow or get entangled in many of the litter items people leave in the environment.

It Effects Plants
Pollution to the water, air and soil is harmful to plants and animals. It causes injury and death to animals and inhibits the growth of plant species. The toxic chemicals taken in by plants and animals can also be passed along to humans

Hurting Yourself
it can be difficult to spot sharp items such as broken glass, metal or plastic hidden in the sand. Similarly, unseen ropes and lines dangling in the ocean pose a significant threat to divers ,Certain litter items, such as cigarette butts and electronic waste, leach chemicals into our waterways, which can then end up in our drinking water.
Water pollution
Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies (e.g. lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater), very often by human activities,Water pollution occurs when pollutants (particles, chemicals or substances that make water contaminated) are discharged directly or indirectly into water bodies without enough treatment to get rid of harmful compounds.

Air Pollutions
Air pollution occurs when gases, dust particles, fumes (or smoke) or odour are introduced into the atmosphere in a way that makes it harmful to humans, animals and plant.
Soil Pollution
Soil pollution is defined as the build-up in soils of persistent toxic compounds, chemicals, salts, radioactive materials, or disease causing agents, which have adverse effects on plant growth and animal health.

The wars that hit the earth are the most likely cause of soil pollution.
