Water Pollution

There are many different reasons why  is bad for our environment, before mentioning the main point, (Who thinks that pollution is bad for our environment?)

There are different types of pollution, such as, Water Pollution, Air Pollution, Noise Pollution, Soil Pollution, Nuclear Waste Pollution & many others but today I will be focusing on Water Pollution.

What is Water Pollution?
Water Pollution happens when toxic matter enters lakes, rivers, oceans and so on. Not only is this entering oceans, this can end up in the water you shower in, wash your face with and even the water you drink.

Water Pollution is a serious issue because it leads to less freshwater which means that there isn’t enough safe drinking water to support our bodies.

2.4 million people die each year from Water Pollution. When water from rain and melting snow runs off roofs and roads into our rivers or sea, it picks up toxic chemicals, dirt, trash, and diseases along the way. Water Pollution affects not only individual living things, but can also contaminate cities & even people.

At least 320 million people in China do not have access to clean drinking or showering water & Fourteen billion pounds of garbage mostly plastic, is dumped in the ocean every year. Water Pollution affects drinking water, lakes, oceans all over the world. In many countries it is usually a cause of death.

I think that we can stop this issue by stop littering and start recycling and also start thinking about all the animals that are dying. Thank You and I hope my speech has taught you something.
